Corpus Christi Procession of 1927 at St. Michael's Mission at Inchelium

In 1927 Father Griva organized and led Corpus Christi processions across eastern and central Washington as part of the Jesuit mission of conversion of the local tribes. This exhibit gives a brief description of who Father Griva was, the Jesuit missions in the area, their effect on local native populatinos, what the Corpus Christi procession was and its significance, and what it looks like today. Photographs of various Corpus Christi Processions are included throughout from various years to give a visual representation of the Catholic tradition and the different people it included.
