Lincoln, Neb., Oct 30, 2011 / 11:19 am
On Thursday, Nov. 3, hundreds of students will gather at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish adjacent to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for the annual Eucharistic Procession.
This will be the fifth annual Eucharistic Procession held on campus, and it has grown tremendously every year. In addition to students, seminarians, the Marian Sisters, School Sisters of Christ the King, Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus and others join the procession.
“We usually have around three hundred and some,” said Father Robert Matya, director of the Newman Center and pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas Parish.
The procession will begin and end at St. Thomas Aquinas Church. Along the way, they will stop at four outdoor altars, prepared at the Student Union, the edge of “Greek Row” at 16th and Vine and the Coliseum, a temporary replacement now that Memorial Stadium is under construction.
