Procession in honour of Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres. Brampton Ontario




Last Sunday, the Heralds of the Gospel participated in a procession in downtown Brampton by invitation of Fr. Andrej Chilmon, Pastor Our Lady of Fatima Parish in that same city.

This particular procession is a Portuguese tradition that comes to Toronto from the Azorean community (I think that is the Island of Sao Miguel where this devotion is most visible). The feast is called Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres and there is a beautiful bust of Our Lord after the scourging that leads the procession through the streets and back to the church. This is a very symbolic tradition because it reminds us that we follow Christ all the days of our lives, through the streets, in the workplace, at home and in all that we do. And as in the procession Christ always leads us back to the Church, His mystical body on earth.

Included in this post, there are some pictures from the procession.

    • The best way would be to get in touch with the parish of Our Lady of the Rosary in Brampton.
