Yesterday, Brazilians celebrated Corpus Christi. The Christian holiday honors the Eucharist, which is Christ’s symbolic presence on earth in a host body.

During the Corpus Christi holiday, evangelical groups host the “March for Jesus” – a São Paulo event that attracts hundreds of thousands every year. In fact, over 25 years the event has shown the growth of evangelicals in Brazil. This year alone, 2 million Christians gathered in celebration of the body of Christ. Organizers called it “the largest Christian event on Earth.”

Here are some of the best images of the 2017 March for Jesus
