UTICA- After Sunday mass several dozen churchgoers made their way to the streets of Utica. Church members from Catholic churches across the area participated in the 2nd annual Honor of Our Lady of Fatima.
The half-mile walk from St. Mary of Mount Carmel Church to Historic Old St. Johns Church had people praying for the Blessed Virgin Mary. Amongst the several dozen walkers were songs, banners, and a procession cart holding up Fatima from St. Johns Church.
“We hope by honoring our blessed mother we will bring peace into our world,” said Father John Buehlei, of St. Johns Church.
Throughout the walk, almost every walker carried their rosary. Members made their strides for the Historic Old St. Johns Church while praying for numerous subjects.
Following the walk was a benediction when the procession arrived.
