Annual Procession

RR1The statue of Madonna Delle Grazie was presented on Sunday afternoon at the annual procession in Boston’s North End. The society was founded in Boston in 1903 from 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.
