Juneau Catholics walk Sunday in the Corpus Christi Procession next to Egan Drive. The procession started in the Department of Labor parking lot and ended at the Cathedral of the Nativity. The procession was part of the worldwide celebration of Corpus Christi, which means "Body and Blood of Jesus." Pope John Paul II wrote that the church "does not only celebrate the Eucharist but solemnly bears it in procession, publicly proclaiming that the sacrifice of Christ is for the salvation of the whole world."
