Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

Corpus Christi

05-26 Corpus ChristiCommemorating the Last Supper, the day before Jesus’ crucifixion, Corpus Christi is celebrated on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday. Many Catholic families in New York will celebrate their children’s first Holy Communion on this day, and there will be processions in the streets in honor of the body of Christ. Perhaps the most natural place to observe a celebration of the holiday is at Corpus Christi Church on West 121st Street, though we are great fans of St. Thomas Episcopal Church with its legendary all-male choir.
