The next upcoming Corpus Christi is on Thursday May 30th, 2024.

Celebration\ Observance

It is celebrated by a big feast with the family. Mystery plays have become a popular attendance during this holiday as well.


It started in the second half of the 13th century in Europe when nun called Juliana of Li├Ęge said that she had been hearing God telling her to make a feast day for the Eucharist. Eventually she got the holiday granted, but it didn't take until after her death.
