Video I took of Filipino SANTACRUZAN procession


#1

Hey everybody :smiley: I took some video of a Filipino procession called SANTACRUZAN that takes place yearly in my neighborhood. It is a wonderful procession that celebrates St. Helena’s founding of the pieces of the “True Cross”. In the procession they have little princesses, teenages princesses and the Queen’s all dressed out in their Sunday best.

They also include in the procession statues of Our Lady as she is represented in the different nations. My favorite was the representation of **Our Lady of LaVang ** and how those processing with the statue were also dressed as Our Lady.

You can view the video on my Youtube page where my nick is SGRfilms :stuck_out_tongue: No, I am not some big time film-maker. I was just trying to sound professional-like…yes, that’s it. LOL

You can also view images of the procession from the local paper.
