The annual Corpus Christi Procession was held at St. Ambrose Church on Sunday, June 18, after the 11:00 Mass which was con-celebrated by Monsignor Vincent Bommarito and Monsignor Salvatore Polizzi. Immediately after the Mass, the congregation began lining up in front of the church.

Parish members lead the way carrying the cross and candles. Anthony Garavaglia served as leader and director of the procession assisted by his son, Jim, in a tradition that started with the senior Garavaglia’s father. Monsignor Bommarito walked with the Monstrance under a gold-fringed canopy carried by men of the parish.
