Beginning in the church, we will process with the Blessed Sacrament out through the front doors and turn west on Mayfield Road. The procession will turn right on Brainard Road going north, then east on Rae Road and into the back parking lot of St. Clare. There will be two stops along the way for prayer and reflection. The entire route is approximately 0.6 miles.
The procession will end in the tent where we will hold an Outdoor Mass at 4:30, which will be followed by a Cavatelli dinner. If you would like to learn more about the dinner or purchase tickets at a discounted rate, you can do so here: https://saintclarefestival.net/Summer/ (scroll to the bottom).
