We at SBCS wish to extend best wishes to the Christian community, and by extension celebrants around the world, as they commemorate the Feast of Corpus Christi.
This year marks the 234th anniversary of the celebration of Corpus Christi in Trinidad and Tobago; it focuses on the Christian tradition and belief in the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ and his Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist.
“The significance of the feast resonates with us all, as it calls upon us to demonstrate values of compassion, sacrifice and love in our service to each other. Traditionally a great day for planting, may the natural and religious seeds we sow today yield bountiful and lasting fruit for ourselves and our nation.” – Executive Director, Dr. Robin Maraj.
Wishing you a holy Corpus Christi.
About Corpus Christi
Corpus Christi is a religious Christian feast that is mainly celebrated by Roman Catholics. The feast occurs in either late May or early June, on the first Thursday after Trinity Sunday (60 days after Easter). Corpus Christi, meaning ‘the body of Christ’ in Latin, celebrates the transubstantiation of bread and wine into the actual body of Christ during Mass.
