Catholics in Spalding brought their faith out into the open when more than 200 people marched through the town centre on Sunday.

The Blessed Sacrament Procession, which symbolises the Eucharist or Holy Communion first served by Jesus Christ to his disciples, was the first of its kind in Spalding for 100 years to mark the Roman Catholic Church’s Year of Faith.

Children and adults marched from St Norbert’s Church in St Thomas’s Road to Market Place where an open-air service was led by parish priest Father Jim Burke.

He said: “It was a fantastic day and it was wonderful to see people coming from their homes, many armed with cameras and videos, to watch what was going on and catch a glimpse of the procession.” Photo (TIM WILSON): SG090613-124TW.
