Sunday afternoon, Our Lady of Fatima church procession

Late this afternoon, a procession passed through the village square. And very colourful was the procession.

Better make that procession cum pageant: among the participants were minor and major angels, boy scouts, and Filipina's in evening ball gowns.

Makes a change from the traditional and noisy lion dancers or the Disneyfied goings-on of the island's Evangelicals. This one was organised by the Roman Catholics.

Their church on a little island in the South China Sea goes by the name Our Lady of Fatima. But why have a procession cum pageant today? Wikipedia is your friend: 13 May, 1917.
