Corpus Christi

Carpet Of Flowers and Procession

For over 140 years, Arundel Cathedral has celebrated the feast of Corpus Christi with a magnificent festival of flowers, featuring a world famous Carpet of Flowers in the central aisle of the Cathedral and a procession of the Blessed Sacrament from the Cathedral to the courtyard of Arundel Castle, where Benediction is given.

The dates for Corpus Christi 2023 are 7th & 8th June.

We are delighted to once again be planning for a full carpet of flowers in celebration of the Feast of Corpus Christi.

The Cathedral will be open to view the carpet on Wednesday 7th June from 9.30am – 7.00pm and on Thursday 8th June from 9.30am – 5.30pm when the Mass begins.

If you are planning to visit, please note that booking is not required and entry is free, although we do rely on the generous donations of our visitors to make this event possible.

A selection of hot & cold food and drinks will be available at the Cathedral Centre on Wednesday and Thursday from 9am. The Cathedral Centre is fully accessible and is two minutes walk from the Cathedral, the first building past the pub.

If you have any questions, please e-mail the Cathedral Office on or call 01903 882297.

If you would like to help with the preparations for this event, or over the days we are open for viewing, please contact the Cathedral Office.
