History. The celebration of the Corpus Christi dates back to 1246. “Corpus Christi” is a Latin phrase that literally means “Body of Christ.” The event is a commemoration of the Last Supper of Jesus, the day before His Crucifixion in the accounts of the Bible. In England, Corpus Christi was celebrated starting 1308, some accounts say.
The Feast of Corpus Christi is normally celebrated on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday, which falls one week after Pentecost Sunday.Since the date of Pentecost Sunday depends on the date of Easter, which changes every year, Trinity Sunday (and thus Corpus Christi) falls on a different date each year as well.
