St. Michael’s, Scranton – Eucharistic Procession for Christ the King
The sounds of Christus Vincit and Pange Lingua filled the streets of Scranton, Pennsylvania once again as St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church in West Scranton celebrated the Feast of Christ the King with its annual Eucharistic procession.
Afterwards, Father Gordon celebrated Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. This was followed by a weekly Sunday breakfast in the basement of the church.
The procession is one of several held by the parish throughout the year. Local residents will typically come out on their porches while children and adults from the parish hand out Rosaries, holy cards, and Miraculous Medals. The processions serve as a great witness to the local community and each time a new route is taken. Earlier in October during the annual Rosary procession, the parish was allowed to process down Main Street while praying the Rosary.
The parish is very grateful to the Scranton Police Department for the escort and to all those who made the event a grand success.
