From the Pilot: The archdiocese’s long tradition of May processions

145

From The Pilot:

“In 1912, Most Holy Redeemer and Sacred Heart Churches in East Boston held their May processions on the same Sunday. 1,000 children from the former church and 750 from the latter participated in the simultaneous processions, which traversed different routes and effectively halted traffic in East Boston for part of the afternoon.”
