Corpus Christi Day faithful take to the streets despite the virus
Believers took to the streets across Poland to celebrate Corpus Christi on June 11 despite the country still struggling to put a lid on the coronavirus outbreak.
The pandemic, however, did lead to some events being muted as precautions limited the size and scope of the popular and colourful processions that are the general hallmark of the occasion.
Some dioceses cancelled street processions while others went ahead with them, but with organisers stressing the need for participants to adhere to social distancing regulations and remain at least two metres apart—an appeal that did not always work.
Warsaw scrapped the grand procession although people could move from church to church, but in Kraków public events went ahead although in a rather dispersed and scaled down manner.
