If your window was open on Wednesday night, you may have heard devotees to Saint Anthony marching through the streets of the North End on the traditional June 13th Feast Day alongside the Franciscan Friars and the Italian American Band.
The candlelit procession through the streets of the North End followed a Mass held inside Saint Leonard Church. Outside of the church, Saint Anthony bread, holy oil, and procession candles were available before the procession.
The popular Saint Anthony’s Feast celebration will take place later this Summer. Check out a complete list of all the Italian Feasts and Processions here.
Please note, the St. Anthony’s Feast will continue to be held during the last weekend of August. See NorthEndBoston.com for the feast schedule.
