Good Friday in Bensonhurst


Sanchez-and-clergy-march_cmyk Auxiliary Bishop Paul Sanchez led the traditional Good Friday procession conducted by the parishes in Bensonhurst. St. Mary Mother of Jesus was the host parish. Following a one-mile walk through the neighborhood, about 2,000 people gathered outside St. Mary Mother of Jesus Church for prayers and a blessing with the relic of the true cross. Shown above with Bishop Sanchez are Msgr. Robert Romano, pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe; Msgr. Joseph Grimaldi, Episcopal Vicar for Brooklyn; and Deacon Dante Colandrea of St. Athanasius parish.
