Our Lady Star of the Sea
After their First Communion, the children are able to attend the beautiful Corpus Christi celebration at Arundel Cathedral. Sadly, the Carpet of Flowers and Procession of the Blessed Sacrament at Corpus Christi has not been possible for 2020 and there is no Carpet of Flowers for 2021 either. The Carpet of Flowers has only been cancelled once before during the First World War when the men working on the Norfolk Estate were away fighting at the front.
This years Corpus Christi takes place on 3rd June. Due to the current restrictions there is only a small amount of room in the Cathedral. Therefore, the carpet of Flowers won’t be laid this year and the number attending will be by ballot only. As a result they are not able to extend an invitation for us to join them this time. The service will be at 5:30pm and if there is a procession it will take place in the grounds of the Cathedral. They have however, extended an invitation for us to join them next year on June 16th. It should be possible to watch the sevice on the Cathedral website: https://arundelcathedral.uk/
