Festive Procession


A Mass in Spanish honoring the feast of Our Lady of Suyapa, the patroness of Honduras, was celebrated Feb. 3 at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The principal celebrant was Father Juan Padilla Lopez, vicar general of the Archdiocese of Tegucigalpa, Honduras. At left is the entrance procession during the afternoon liturgy; the umbrellas are part of the cultural tradition.
