May Procession of Our Lady in London
Monday 4th May 2015

With Sunday School children strewing flowers, and a statue of Our Lady held aloft by four men of the parish, the annual May Procession went through the streets of The Borough, London Bridge, on Sunday, to the strains of the popular "Lourdes hymn" with its chorus of "Ave, Ave, Ave Maria".

The May Procession followed the 11 am Solemn Mass at the Church of the Most Precious Blood, and was led by altar servers with a Cross, incense, and lighted processional candles.  From the church the procession moved through the streets of London in Borough in the shadow of the Shard, the 87-storey skyscraper in Southwark that dominates the skyeline.

The large congregation, led by Father Christopher Pearson, followed the flower-decked statue as it was carried down the aisle, under the railway arch and out into Southwark Street, drawing attention from bus passengers,

Sunday shoppers and passers-by, many of whom stopped to take photographs on mobile phones. Along the Borough High Street, it passed the War Memorial and continued down Union Street and so back to Precious Blood Church, for the singing of the Regina Coeli and final blessing.

Afterwards, there were refreshments in the Parish Room.
