The Procession of Saints at the 9th Street Italian Market

May 08, 2022 337

The Italian Market has not officially been blessed in over two years, so we are excited to welcome back the Procession of Saints on May 22! It is a tradition that stems back centuries and that took place in every Italian & Mexican village. It was (and still is) a time where the church and communities came together to honor faith.

The Procession of Saints starts at the historic Saint Mary Magdalen de' Pazzi Church, pauses for the Blessing of the Market at 9th and Washington, the procession then proceeds along 9th to Christian Street, and concludes at St. Paul Catholic Church. Join us in seeing a centuries old tradition that you might not see anywhere else!
