From Marie Siobhan Boland on the 2003 May Procession
On Thursday, May 1, the thunderstorms held off for us to enjoy our second annual May procession. We began at St. Patrick's Church on Sixth Avenue, with The 5 Joyful Mysteries led by the pastor, Father Kelly, a Coronation of Our Lady, and the Litany of St. Joseph. We then proceeded to march, with police escort, from St. Patrick's to St. Peter's, about 0.7 mi. There were about 120 cadets from Christian Brothers Academy, some of whom carried the statues of Mary and Joseph on platforms. The Father Flanigan Marching band, mostly elementary school students, led the procession playing Marian songs the entire way. The late Father Flanigan was a former pastor at St. Peter's Church. As this band marched through the streets of Troy, many people came out of their houses to see the crowned statue of Mary, and the few hundred lay marchers. At the rear of the procession came the Christian Brothers Academy drill team and marching band, playing patriotic music. It was great! When we arrived at St. Peter's Church, we were met by many other faithful who could not march. The church was packed!! We entered and the skies opened, with thunder, lightning, and a deluge of rain. Thank you, Mary, for watching over us! At St. Peter's, the pastor, Father James McNerney, exposed the Blessed Sacrament, we prayed 5 Glorious Mysteries, the Litany of the Blessed Mother, had Benediction, and investiture into the brown scapular by Father Jeffrey L'Arche. Everybody agreed that it was a glorious day and Our Lady must have been very pleased. We pray that by this procession, people may be drawn to the Blessed Mother, and ultimately, Her Son. Just wanted to share this great event with all of you!! You are all invited to next year's procession!
