Blessed Sacrament Procession, the 28th of April, 2018
On Saturday the 28th of April, 2018, the Bishop, Mgr. Patrick McKinney, led several hundreds of Catholics on a procession of the Blessed Sacrament through the streets of West Nottingham, from the parish church of S. Mary in Hyson Green to the Cathedral, at the old West Gate of the City. In addition to parishioners from the area and other visitors from afar, the Bishop was assisted by members of the clergy from the Cathedral, from the parishes of Nottingham City and beyond, both during the procession and as he led prayers for the beatification of the Venerable Sr. Mary Potter, foundress of the Order of the Little Company of Mary, who began that Order in Hyson Green and whose mortal remains lie buried in the Cathedral ambulatory. The following is a photographic summary of the event.
