New Thursday Night Tradition with St. Lucy’s Feast and Procession [Photos]

The St. Lucy Society kicked off their 96th Feast on Thursday, August 24, 2017 in honor of Santa Lucia, St. Lucy, Vergine e’ Martire – Protectress of Eyesight. The change from Monday to the Thursday night before the St. Anthony’s Feast appeared to bring out more people to the festivities. After a blessing on Endicott Street, a solemn procession was made by society members through the neighborhood streets with a marching band, flower girls and color guard. Enjoy paging through the photo gallery from the evening celebration.
