The people of St. Sebastian Church keep a centuries-old tradition, processing through the streets with the Blessed Sacrament. The feast of the Body of Christ, also known as Corpus Christi, celebrates the Catholic belief that Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist. The leader of the Diocese of Brooklyn, Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio, carries the Eucharist through the streets of Woodside, Queens, joined by hundreds of faithful.
