Photos of Our Lady of Christchurch procession

Thanks to Lenore Hayes for sending us photos of the great procession held in Christchurch, New Zealand, in honour of Mary Immaculate. There was a terrific turnout of 400 - 500 people.

The statue of Our Lady of Christchurch carried here in procession, turned 180 degrees during the earthquake which rocked the city, to face directly out of the cathedral window and look out over the city.

The statue was damaged while being rescued from the ruins of the cathedral, and was marvellously restored by the Carmelite nuns Christchurch.
From left to right: Br. Paul Mary, F.SS.R. Fr. Rizzo. F.S.S.P. and Br. Xavier Maria, F.SS.R. walk the statue.

His Lordship Bishop Barry Jones consecrates the city of Christchurch to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The crowned Queen!

Sweet Mary, our Lady and Queen, Pray for us!
