Acolyte Festival at San Francisco de Asís

Yesterday Iglesia San Francisco de Asís hosted an Acolyte Festival for the acolytes of Panamá Metro in the Diocese of Panamá. Acolytes from San Francisco de Asís, San Pablo, San Mateo, San Lucas, Christ-Church-by-the-Sea, San Juan, and San Cristóbal, plus the combined choirs of San Francisco de Asís and San Cristóbal all joined Bishop Julio Murray and the clergy of San Lucas, San Mateo, Christ-Church-by-the-Sea, San Cristóbal and, of course, San Francisco de Asís for a special Mass. All the participating acolytes received a certificate of participation and a wooden cross. Let me tell you, we had one loooooong procession! Afterwards we enjoyed a lovely lunch of rice, chicken, slaw and cake. All in all a fine way to spend a Saturday morning.
