Procession in Honor of Our Lady of Lourdes
The Children’s Rosary (Rosaire des Enfants) at Sacred Heart Parish in Seychelles shared these beautiful pictures. Members of the Children’s Rosary group participated in their Parish procession in honor of Our Lady of Lourdes on February 10th. The group leader explained that in Seychelles each parish is given a Feast. Their parish was blessed to receive two: the Feast of the Sacred Heart and the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. For these Parish Feasts the Bishop usually presides at the Mass.
Bishop Denis Weihe and their Parish Priest Father Landry are shown in the photo above walking in the procession. Individuals from around the island came and participated in the procession. The members of the Children’s Rosary can be seen holding baskets with rose petals which they showered over a statue of Our Lady during the procession. The children are wearing blue or white scarves that were made by the group leader.
The procession concluded with Benediction at the Parish Grotto where there is a statue of Our Lady of Lourdes. We thank the Children’s Rosary in Seychelles for sharing these pictures and the wonderful tradition on their Island which honors Our Lady of Lourdes. It is beautiful to see so many children participating.
