Celebrating Sunday of The Holy Eucharist (Corpus Christi) at Hanga

It has be customary for the Catholic Church in Tanzania on Sunday of the Holy Eucharist to celebrate it with all pomps. It begins with ordinary Mass celebration and after the conclusion of Mass a Blessed Host is carried in a monstrance and people process with it outside the church on streets for a kilometer or so. As the people process the monstrance is insenced and people sing various songs. It is time for praise to God and meditation as well.
At Hanga the procession is very long involving about 1,000 people which include villagers, monks and students. Like in previous years, this year the celebration at Hanga was spectacular. The little children spreading flowers before the monstrance during the procession were so oustanding.

Below are some sections of the procession.
