Parish follows faith

For at least a few miles on Sunday, things resembled a sense of normal for parishioners of St. Francis and St. Mary Parish in Brussels. The parish’s pastor, Father Edward Looney led a Eucharistic procession from the church to Brussels Hill, where he offered a blessing on not just the consecrated host his monstrance was holding, but for the surrounding communities as a whole. Looney has been able to reach members and other area Catholics via Facebook and 104.1 WRLU since public masses were suspended in March. He says Sunday’s procession was a positive sign.

Looney says he was pleasantly surprised when parishioners walked with him rather than watch the procession from their cars. He hopes to host a Eucharistic procession for his other parish, St. Peter and St. Hubert’s in the towns of Lincoln and Rosiere this Sunday.
