Village Festa

Yesterday in the village where I wasbrought up Rabat, they had the feast (or as we say in Maltese festa) of Corpus Christi. In this feast, the sacrament of Christ is taken out in a procession followed by the children whp just did their First Holy Communion. Here are some pics I or hubby took on thge day.



The Church of St Paul all dressed up for the occassion and the congregation
The Archpriest coming out under a canopy to shield the Sacrament

The Brass Band playing along with the procession


My mama and niece Rebecca ( 9 months)



My puppy fast asleep
