CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The streets in front of the Corpus Christi Cathedral were filled with hundreds of people Thursday night as the Roman Catholic Dioceses of Corpus Christi was held a celebration.

They recognized the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ also known as the Feast of Corpus Christi.

The celebration started with a scripture reading and prayer at the cathedral.

Bishop Michael Mulvey then led a procession which made three stops.

It stopped at the Mother Teresa Shelter, the Sacred Heart Catholic Church and finally in front of the Nueces County Jail. 

The feast celebrates the real presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity.    

Those who attended said that many at the jail and the shelter were happy to have the procession stop by them.

The night concluded with a light reception at the cathedral.

Organizers hope the event will grow even bigger next year.
