Filipino Community Pilgrimage. 7th October 2012

On a bright but chilly Sunday at the beginning of October the Filipino Community gathered here in Aylesford for their annual pilgrimage.  The event was well attended and a joyful atmoshpere soon filled  the piazza.  Mass was celebrated at the Main Shrine with Phillip Lindsay Clarkes statue of Our Lady of the Assumption looking down on her children.  Accompanied by a statue of Our Lady opf fatima the Scapular Vision statue was processed around the Rosary Way with prayer and song before taking its place on the main shrine altar.  Music was provided by a choir assembled from the Filipino Community and everyone was in good voice for the celebration.   
The pilgrimage closed with a picnic lunch in the grounds and a chance tp meet up with friends and relatives or to play games in the safety of the Friars.
