People from the Four Pillars in Faith Area Catholic Community gathered June 6 to celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ on Corpus Christi Sunday. This is a day the Catholic Church honors the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.
Father Derek Wiechmann, pastor of Four Pillars, started the procession, which began at St. Mary’s in Milaca. Father Sebastian Nzabhayanga, who is visiting Milaca from the Diocese of Kigoma, Tanzania, also led the procession, alternating with Father Wiechmann at each prayer stop.
The two-mile route included prayer stations along the way, stopping at the public school, Life Choices (a pregnancy-support center) and the homes of two parishioners.
The Four Pillars in Faith ACC includes the parishes of St. Mary, Milaca; St. Kathryn, Ogilvie; St. Mary, Mora; and St. Louis, Foreston.
