Procession of the Body of God

Religious celebration in Leça da Palmeira

The Mayor of Matosinhos, Luísa Salgueiro, yesterday joined the Corps of God procession, in Leça da Palmeira, a celebration that takes place 60 days after Easter.

Corpus Christi is a Catholic celebration that celebrates the mystery of the Eucharist, the sacrament in which the faithful receive the body and blood of Jesus Christ.

The procession left the Parish Church of Leça da Palmeira, traveling through several arteries of the parish, with the participation of several children and young people who made their Profession of Faith and First Communion.

The Parish Priest of Leça Palmeira, Father Francisco Andrade, the president of the union of the parishes of Matosinhos and Leça da Palmeira, Paulo Carvalho, as well as representatives of other institutions, authorities, confraternities and brotherhoods also participated in the procession.
