Pretty much true here in Western Wisconsin, except that the K of C’s are thriving and growing very well. Maybe because they are more inclusive of family in their events and projects. Seems like the others, although for men only like the Knights, were not so heavy on promoting family.
We had processions in my home town in Michigan in the 50’s. Seems that the move away from a lot of the para-liturgical events soon after Vatican II took it’s toll. Wednesday night Perpetual Help Devotions, Friday night Stations, 40 Hours, Missions, and May Crowning of Mary disappeared almost overnight. Some of them are starting to come back and 40 Hours has kind of morphed into Perpetual Adoration in some parishes. We are scheduling Missions here and there in the Diocese again, and Stations on the Fridays of Lent are back.
I would suspect that as the influx of Hispanics into the U.S. Church continues we will see more processions and special devotions. They are a people who know how to celebrate their faith.
