More than 3000 attend Adelaide Marian procession

Archbishop Wilson leads procession

More than 3000 Catholic parishioners attended the 64th annual Marian Procession in the south parklands of Adelaide yesterday. This year's procession had a focus on attracting youth to the Church, reports 

Christian Brothers College students carried a statue of the Blessed Mother Mary 1km around the Pilgrim Peace Park, near Veale Gardens.

CBC vice captain of faith, and Year 12 student, Thomas James said he was honoured to represent the school by helping to carry the statue for the third year in a row. 'It is a very spiritual moment for me and it is great for the school because it shows us in a positive light,' he said.

The statue was met by students from the Adelaide Academy of Irish Dancing while dozens of other parishioners also wore traditional costume as they marched behind Church banners while reciting the rosary.

Our Lady of Sacred Heart College students read from scriptures during the Mass while Archbishop Philip Wilson rededicated the Archdiocese of Adelaide to the patronage and care of Mary.

Archbishop Wilson, who led the procession, said that devotion to Mary had become a key focus for the Church. 'The Marian procession is truly a multicultural celebration of our faith,' he said.
