Boston, Mass., Nov 18, 2021 / 10:30 am
The Catholic student center at the University of South Alabama in Mobile is set to host the school’s first-ever Eucharistic procession the evening of Nov. 18.
“We are very honored to be a part of the first ever Eucharistic procession on campus,” said Millie Martorana, a junior majoring in Business Management who attends Mass at the student center.
The event is set to begin with a Mass in front of the school’s Hancock Whitney Stadium at 6 p.m. CST, followed by the Eucharistic procession which will stop in the middle of the campus at the Moulton Tower for prayers, and will finish at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Student Center. Organizers say the event is open to all students and anyone off campus who wishes to participate.
Martorana told CNA she is most excited about the opportunity to “offer this powerful prayer for all of the students on campus and testify to the true presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist in the Catholic Church.”
