A Procession and a Barbeque
Tuesday 18th August 2015

"What's going on?" asked the leaflets that were handed out along the Borough High Street at London Bridge on Sunday, and the leaflet answered itself: a Procession of Our Lady, to honour her entry into Heaven. And everyone was invited to join in.

The parish of the Most Precious Blood held a Procession all around the Borough following the sung 11 am Mass, and things finished with prayers, hymns and a barbeque at the CrossBones garden in Redcross Way at the rear of the church. With children throwing flower petals, and a large crowd following behind the flower-decked statue of Our Lady, the procession made a colourful entry into the High Street. Father Chrisopher Pearson led the rosary, and the singing of "Ave Ave Maria", accompanied by the parish choir, and the music was amplified by a new portable sound-system which was carried along in the procession too.

Sausages, burgers, and wine were enjoyed at the barbeque, which rounded off the summer's activities in the parish. In the next couple of weeks, the children will be back at school, and parish groups will be meeting again after the summer break.
