In the last two decades, the Parish of OLOR Kellyville has been so enriched with the gifts of diversity in cultures and languages. People from four corners of the world have come and made their home at Kellyville.
Recently, in preparation for the celebration of the Feast of the Pentecost, 52 nationalities were listed that made up the Parish Community, these people bring along the cultural practice of their faith of the Church from their homelands.
One of these is a street procession, which has been a practice in the Parish these last 10 years.
The Feast of Corpus Christi this year was again celebrated with such solemnity.
After Mass the community joined in a procession through the streets of Kellyville.
The procession was led by the altar servers and acolytes of the parish. The Blessed Sacrament was carried in turns by Fathers Joseph and David, who are the parish and assistant priests at Kellyville.
More than 300 parishioners surrounded the Blessed Sacrament as the Lord was processed through the streets of Kellyville and expressed their joy and reverence by singing hymns and chanting the Chaplet of Divine Mercy led by Friar Louis.
Parishioners, inspired by the friars, processed to celebrate the Body of Christ and to proclaim Him to our district.
It was pleasing to note that we received different responses from members of a local sect made their way after completion of their worship.Some smiled, some ignored and then some showed some distain.
