SRI AMAN – 22 August was the feast of the Queenship of Mary, the feast day of the Church of Our Lady Queen of Peace. The theme for this year’s feast day was ‘Family, journey with Christ NOW!’ This theme was chosen based on the Archdiocese’s focus on ‘The Family of Hope’.
The celebration started with a Mass to thank God for giving us Mother Mary and Jesus. After the Mass, all the parishioners present took Mother Mary for a ride in a procession. It was a gratifying experience to see the many families walking together during the procession. Everyone seemed charged with energy during the one-and-a-half kilometre walk singing nonstop to our Lady the whole way.
The procession ended back at the Church for Rosary prayers at the grotto.
