The annual procession was held for Madonna delle Grazie on Sunday, July 14, 2019 in Boston’s North End. The society honors Madonna Delle Grazie of Avellino, Italy and was founded in Boston in 1903 from San Sossio Baronia Avellino. Madonna delle Grazie (Our Lady of Graces) is a devotion to the Virgin Mary in the Roman Catholic Church.
Photographer Gerri Palladino captured these moments from the procession.
The end of this year’s event was marred by unauthorized fireworks that went out of control at DeFilippo Park (the Gassy) during the procession. See this previous post to read more.
