Corpus Christi 2007 - Procession at Assumption Grotto

I decided to focus on capturing video of the Corpus Christi procession at Assumption Grotto this year, with the hopes of producing a short clip which captures the spirit of the day. It will be some time before I can release such a video as it will undergo much editing.

However, a good friend of Assumption Grotto, Michael Powell, whose wife and daughters are quite active at the parish, was kind enough to use his photography skills to capture still shots of the day. We start with the altars set up on the grounds of our parish.

We start with the procession toward's the first altar, which was set up on the south side of the cemetary.

Altar boys, wearing festive white cassocks and gold shoulder capes, lead the way.

A priest of Opus Angelorum is carrying the Monstrance. He is flanked by Fr. Eduard Perrone - the pastor of Assumption Grotto. Fr. Perrone had been conducting the symphony and choir at the Noon Mass, which ended just moments before these photos were taken.

Here, we see that on the other side of the OA priest, is Grotto's new Deacon, Jim Wilder.

More posts will be made when I receive additional photos.
