In Toledo, Ohio, USA, an entire Catholic Highschool of 600 students and staff participated in a Eucharistic procession and adoration prayer. Liam Brown, a student of Central Catholic High School, age 18, had this idea and encouraged his school to take part!
Fr. David Kidd said to Catholic News World, "the idea came from a student which I think was awesome! The Eucharistic Procession was a new experience for many of our students, so we wanted to make it prayerful, memorable, and big. So many students and faculty and staff members did the hard work to make this possible because we believe in the mission of Central Catholic High School to form disciples of Jesus Christ."
"We are made to give praise to God! We give glory to God when we take Jesus into every part of our lives!"
Fr. David Kidd also explained, "a Eucharistic procession helps us visibly see that. Eucharistic Adoration is one of the favorite types of prayer for our students and staff because of the time for silence to be with our Lord amidst the business of life. We are so blessed to have the opportunity to make that a priority for our students. It’s who we are and we wouldn’t want it any other way."

Fr. Kidd quoted scripture writing, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day.” - John 6:53-4
