If you look carefully, you will see the altar boy on the far side swinging the thurible towards the Blessed Sacrament. He will bow after three swings, then turn, at which time the altar boy closest to us will turn and swing the thurible three times. They continued alternating all allong the route.
Another picture of one of the Missionaries of Charity, holding a song sheets handed out earlier.
