St. Patrick's Cathedral - Corpus Christi Procession - St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Pictured in the photo are Bishop Anthony Schuler on the steps of the Cathedral, Franciscans, Knights of Columbus flower girls, etc. Below is a description from the Centennial book.

The tradition of the Corpus Christi Procession, started on the suggestion of Bishop Schuler on June 18, 1919 to celebrate the end of World War I, became an annual event for Catholics to profess their faith in the Eucharistic Christ. The largest procession was in El Paso from St. Patrick Cathedral to Sacred Heart Church when thousands of Catholics would make the four mile walk although many rural churches also held their own processions on the Feast of Corpus Christi.

The procession in El Paso began each year at 6 p.m. when Bishop Schuler emerged from his residence across from the Cathedral and walked under an arch formed by the swords of the Knights of Columbus. Carrying the Blessed Sacrament, the Bishop led the faithful through the streets for the two hour march, stopping at altars set up along the route by El Paso churches. Diverse Catholic organizations from all the churches in the region participated including church choirs, school bands, seminarians, the Jesuit and Franciscan choirs, Knights of Columbus, altar boys, troops of boy and girl scouts waving American flags, religious orders, priests, church societies carrying banners, and thousands of ordinary lay persons. At each altar along the route, the crowd stopped to profess its faith and continued on until reaching the last outdoor altar on the steps of Sacred Heart Church. After a final blessing in front of the Church, Bishop Schuler carried the Blessed Sacrament into the church and placed it in the tabernacle

The church was the last built by Rev. Carlos Pinto, S.J and dedicated by Bishop Schuler on Sept. 17, 1916.

According to Centennial History: The Diocese of El Paso, written by Janine Young, CEO of the Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso, Holy Family “was founded in response to the influx of refugees into the Sunset Heights neighborhood during the Mexican Revolution.” At one time, Young wrote, the parish contained the offices for the Revista Católica Press called Canisius House. The parish’s dedication to helping out migrant brothers and sisters continues to this day.

Below is the 35th wedding anniversary blessing that was done on June 10, 2012— 35 years to the day that Highly and I got married at Saint Patrick’s. I had called the Cathedral several times to set it up as Highly and I were going to be in town for a niece’s graduation. Never heard back from the rectory.. Showed up on the steps for Mass, approached an usher, and he made it happen… beyond our wildest imagination. Father appeared ( he died that summer in Chicago.. I am sorry I do not know his name). He was so inviting, so gracious. He got our names and then said he would call us up. Not only was he going to do a blessing for us, he was acknowledging all the graduates from kindergarten thru college! He made everyone feel special.

He had Highly and I bring up the gifts. At the end of the Mass, he called us up again… talked to us.. drew laughter from the crowd when he asked if their was passion in the marriage, and proceeded to involve the whole congregation in giving us a blessing. We felt so blessed, so honored..

Never did any of us think that he would be gone that summer and Highly would be gone in November 2012.

Regards, Sally Falkner
