The London Eucharistic Octave

As the United Kingdom emerges from Lockdown, in a year that has seen churches closed and Processions cancelled, all are invited to gather together in the heart of the nation’s capital to honour Our Eucharistic Lord, celebrate the richness of the Catholic Church and take to the streets of London to share the message that Christus Vincit!

The week will begin with a Pontifical Votive Mass of the Blessed Sacrament celebrated by His Eminence Vincent Cardinal Nichols — at noon on Saturday 11th September at Corpus Christi Church, Maiden Lane, Covent Garden — and culminating in a procession of the Blessed Sacrament through the streets of Central London on Sunday 19th September, starting at 3.30pm.

Each evening during this week of prayer and adoration, Holy Mass in a different form will be celebrated at 6.30pm at Corpus Christi, Maiden Lane.
