Photo Gallery: “All Saints Day” Procession in Boston’s North End

A new tradition started this year for All Saints Day where eight religious societies came together for a celebratory gathering in Boston’s North End. Known primarily for their feasts and processions, the groups sponsored a Community Mass with Fr. Claude Scrima and Italian music on November 1st at the newly restored Saint Leonard Church. After the Mass, a unique “All Saints” procession commenced through the streets with two marching bands. The participating societies included Societá Santa Maria di Anzano, Saint Joseph Society, Madonna Delle Grazie Society, Saint Agrippina Di Mineo Benefit Society, Madonna Della Cava Society, Madonna del Soccorso di Sciacca Society (Fisherman’s Club), Santa Rosalia di Palermo Society and the San Gennaro Foundation. The special event was organized by DePasquale Ventures. [Photos by Matt Conti.]
