The Lord of the Miracles celebration began with a Spanish Mass at St. Mary's parish in New London, CT. Deacon Jesus Diaz Canseco of Peru gave the Homily. He was very passionate and stirring in his delivery and was greeted by applause at the end. A float with Senor de los Milagros was placed at the side of the alter by the men of the parish, and carried out after Mass for a procession around the block on the streets of New London. Parishioners took turns carrying the massive float including men and women. More than 100 people took part in the procession of hymns and prayers ending back at the parish hall. Plenty of food was served after the procession, and several dance groups entertained the parishioners with traditional Peruvian dances and native costumes.
