Snapshots of Corpus Christi in Port of Spain 2011

I did not go to the Corpus Christi Mass and Procession to take photographs. I did however walk with my camera and so here are a few photos I took: Chorpus Christi in Port of Spain June 2011.

As we were setting up for the procession the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception group was last. The only thing after us were the priests and the canopy with the Eucharist in Monstrance. Here the banner is displayed and the parishioners are about to assemble behind it.

Both in the courtyard of the Cathedral and on the procession the two national flags were displayed. Trinidad and Tobago and the Vatican.

As is usually the case, every year, there is a group of schoolchildren dropping rose petals along the route in front of the canopy carrying the Eucharist.

To give homage is more important than to take photographs. So I quickly took a snapshot of the Canopy as it approached. Note the guy on the right. At this point the canopy would take the Eucharist to the place of benediction and then return it to the Cathedral.
