Description

This black and white photograph held by the Powerhouse Museum portrays children participating in the Feast of Corpus Christi procession at St Patrick's Seminary at Manly, Sydney, in 1932. The annual Feast of Corpus Christi procession celebrates the Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist and began in 1246. It is attributed to the thirteenth-century Augustinian nun Juliana of Li├Ęge, who appealed for a celebration of the corpus christi continuously after having visions of the blessed sacrament in her youth.
