Glenties Notes on June 28th 2000

CORPUS CHRISTI PROCESSION
The traditional Corpus Christi Procession took place after 11a.m. Mass last Sunday 25th June2000. The Blessed Sacrament was carried by Deacon Adrian Gavigan, (who is to be ordained to the priesthood next Sunday) to the Grotto and by Fr. Joseph Briody on the return journey to the church. Fr. Patrick Prendergast P.P. Glenties recited the Rosary with a hymn by the choir between each decade. Since it’s inception well over fifty years ago this was the first time that the Procession in Glenties was held on a Sunday and the first time that the Strabane Silver Band, which has been a feature of the Procession for all that time, has been unable to attend. It was also the first time that an umbrellino was used instead of the canopy.
