Walk With Christ 2018
The annual Walk With Christ Eucharistic procession from St Patrick's Church Hill to St Mary's Cathedral in Sydney CBD will take place this year on 3 June. 2018 marks the 200th anniversary of a little known, but most heroic and faith-filled time in the history of the Australian Church.
In 1818, the Government forcibly removed the only Catholic priest in Australia, Fr Jeremiah O’Flynn, from Sydney. Fr O’Flynn’s last pastoral act was to leave the Blessed Sacrament reserved in a faithful Catholic’s home so that the colonists and prisoners could come to adore Christ present there. For two years, the Blessed Sacrament, in this lay Sydney home, was the source and centre of worship and consolation for the priestless Catholics of the Australian colony.
Therefore 2018 marks the 200th Anniversary of Eucharistic Adoration in Australia. Join us as we mark this occasion in a particular way with the annual Walk With Christ Eucharistic Procession on the Feast of Corpus Christi, Sunday 3 June 2018.
Participants are asked to gather at the corner of Pitt St and Martin Place in the CBD at 2:30pm. The procession will conclude at the St Mary’s Cathedral Forecourt with Adoration and Benediction.
