A history-making All Saints’ Procession took place at Saint John the Guardian of Our Lady Parish for the first time on Sunday, October 31, 2021.
Under the direction of Father James Mazzone, pastor, the procession (cancelled last year due to Covid restrictions) took place in Clinton, MA. Gathering clouds and a bit of drizzle did not deter the crowd, and the sun came out just as Father gave his blessing and the sign for the event to begin!
Seventeen large fiberglass statues, on sedias covered with flowers, were carried by parishioners, religious and the local friends. Many banners of Saints were also carried. The event was made possible through the donation of the late Charles Moran, who generously left a legacy to his Parish. The Brothers MICM were honored to carry the statues of the Blessed Mother and of Saint Benedict! The Sisters also joined the event.
The memorable procession climaxed with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament in Saint John’s exquisite Church. It was truly a spiritually exhilarating day!
“Follow the saints, because those who follow them will become saints.”
