So much we don’t know

IMG_4385 Every year we learn something new about our town.

We’d attended concerts in honour of Santa Cecilia for a few years now and thoroughly enjoyed them. We’d also learnt that Santa Cecilia was the patron saint of musicians and thus understood why she was important to the members of the band.

What we didn’t realise was that a special parade takes place before the concert to transfer the effigy of the saint from the Auditorium to the church ready for mass on Sunday.

Once she is safely in the church, the band then tours the streets of the town collecting the young musicians who will be joining them as they go.

Pamela and I didn’t follow the parade all the way around the town but we did catch it on its way from the Auditorium to the church.  You can see my pictures here.
