Sunday, January 29 Beckman Catholic Staff and families started Catholic Schools week with a Eucharistic Procession through the school.
The intention of the Eucharistic procession was to highlight to students and families the central role of Christ in every aspect of school life and to pray for continued guidance and blessings.
The event was open to the public and promoted via social media, the parish bulletin, and the weekly email to families from the principal.
The procession, led by the school chaplain, started in the school chapel, made its way through the academic hallways, the cafeteria, both gymnasiums, the vocational ed corridor, the music corridor, and finally the school auditorium (where weekly all school Masses are held), before returning to the chapel. The procession halted at three altars throughout the school to pause and pray for students, teachers, administrators, families and benefactors. Each stop included Benediction.
Such a procession has never been done in the school (at least not in the last 24 years). This procession was held on a Sunday evening. The event is also intended to serve as a catalyst and guide for discussions on how a procession might be done during the school day.
