Immaculate Conception 2019 Photopost (Part 2)

We finish up with photos of celebrations of the Immaculate Conception just in time to start in on Gaudete Sunday and Rorate Masses, a reminder for which will be posted tomorrow. Note that every one of these has at least a little blue (sometimes quite a lot) in the vestments, a custom which is becomIing more popular all the time. Once again, we thank everyone who contributed these photos - evangelize through beauty!
