A Marian procession will offer a Burnaby parish a wonderful opportunity to unite and show their love for the Blessed Mother.

“The procession is something that brings many families together,” added Father Nicolas Tumbelaka, the parish priest. During his own childhood in Indonesia, he happily participated in a similar procession.
“I want to give the same opportunity to the children” at Our Lady of Mercy, he says. “The procession shows love for the Blessed Mother, honour for her, and builds community.”
The procession will occur outside Our Lady of Mercy Church (7455 10th Ave., Burnaby) after the 11 a.m. Mass May 31.

The congregation will recite decades of the rosary in different languages while going around the track field at St. Thomas More Collegiate.

Father Tumbelaka hopes parishioners and those interested in attending will bring food for the potluck lunch. For more, phone the parish office at 604-522-5733.

Also at Our Lady of Mercy, the youth of the parish performed in a concert called “So Young, So Bright." Melanie Arinzol, a parish youth coordinator said the "Youth for Christ, the Core Choir, our young Indonesian youths, and many more” performed.
