Video, photos, audio from Corpus Christi at Assumption Grotto

Side note: If you use the option for email, in the sidebar at GrottoCast, you will get an email when there are new posts.  If you are on Facebook check the wall of Assumption Grotto Church periodically.  Also check the GrottoCast Twitter Feed.  You likely will not see something in your respective feeds unless it was posted within the hour, or someone has interacted with it.  So, one way around that is to simply check the feeds actively, rather than rely on passive means. 

Here are some images from among those the GoPro Hero 4 was capturing every 5 seconds.  It takes, 12 megapixel photos, but I find it cumbersome to operate as it is so slow to respond.  I've been unable to keep the connection to my smart phone, as well, so I had to choose settings through the camera.

There are actually several hundred people in attendance, but they were spread out considerably, and behind me in many shots. The GoPro really doesn't do good with distance shots and detail, so I had to get closer.

Even here, there are scores of people behind me and to the sides.

These are some still shots from before the Noon Mass of the altars.  Some were incomplete.  I think all families setting these up had problems with the wind which was a huge factor. On one altar close to Gratiot, vases and small statues kept blowing over, so they could not fully prepare it as they wanted. 

There are four altars representing the four corners of the earth, as Fr. John Hardon explains.  Families take each of these on.  Here are the four.  This first one features a mini-altar made by a parishioner, Walt. 

Here, you see the grotto built in the 1800's, after which the parish gets it's nickname, in the background.

The final altar is near Gratiot.
