Marian Procession 2018
On Sunday May 20 many Catholic migrant communities came to the Pilgrim Peace Park, in the South Parklands to participate in one of the biggest diocesan events of the year, the Marian Procession.
This year we celebrated the 160th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Lourdes. More than two thousand Catholics of the Archdiocese of Adelaide gathered together for this very important and beautiful celebration to express their devotion to Mother Mary, Our Lady of Lourdes.
As always Catholic migrant communities were very well represented, wearing their colourful traditional dresses and carrying their banners and umbrellas. It was noticed that each year, there are more and more young people and families with little children saying the Rosary at the procession, in five different languages.
It was a truly wonderful and spiritual outdoor family event where people could express their love to Mother Mary publicly as a Catholic community.
