   The 16th Annual Eucharistic Procession and Public Grand Rosary Rally started
          in front of St Patrick's Church at 1:30 PM, Sunday, June 6.
 The Legion of Mary
          was joined by 100 or more, for the Eucharist Procession through the streets of
          downtown San Francisco in commemoration of the Solemnity of the Most Holy
          Body and Blood of Christ. The attendance was less than usual, because there were
          four other Processions held simultaneously, at Mission Dolores, Corpus Christi,
          St. Agnes in the Haight, and another by the Archdiocese, so San Franciscans had a
          good chance to participate in a Procession their own districts.
          St Patrick's Church is located at 756 Mission St.
          (between 3rd & 4th) San Francisco, Ca. 94103.

Oct 15-22nd
       Peregrinatio Pro Christo - Stockton, California
       The PPC at St. Luke's Parish in Stockton was a great success!! 2350 homes were contacted,
       2500 Parish Bulletins handed out, and 253 non-practicing Catholics located. Sixteen
       Legionaries arrived, and another 14 Legionaries from Stockton participated. Senatus wishes to        thank all those who drove, helped out, prepared meals, and welcomed the Legionaries. Special        Thanks to the Fr. Juan Crespi Council of the Knights of Columbus, the Members of the Divine        Mercy, and the local Praesidia. There were usually 30 or more people at the excellent prepared        dinners each night. Like every PPC, there were interesting stories: A Legionary ran into a        young Catholic at a basketball court. He made a bet: "Will you go to Church on Sunday, if I        make this basket?" He was standing at half court, but picked up the ball, and heaved it -        naturally, it was all net...Another Legionary participated in door to door, even though she was ill        with Cancer, so think of her and pray for her recuperation.
      Thanks again to all Legionaries and friends, for your help, your backup, and your hard work.
                         The Officers and members of the San Francisco Senatus.
