Devotees of Madonna Delle Grazie held their annual procession in Boston’s North End on Sunday, July 8, 2012. The society was founded in Boston in 1903 San Sossio Baronia Avellino. Featuring Saint Alfio’s Band and the Northeast Italian Band, the procession started at St. Leonard’s Church at the corner of Hanover & Prince Streets and made its way through the neighborhood with many stops along the way.
Madonna delle Grazie (Our Lady of Graces) is a devotion to the Virgin Mary in the Roman Catholic Church. (Read more at Wikipedia.)
