Sunday 2nd June was Italy’s Republic Day…and Corpus Christi.
The beautiful 12th century church…Chiesa Parrocchiale di San Pietro…in Corsena, was decorated with flowers and candles for the First Communion fo several local children.
It is an excellent opportunity to see some of the beautiful religious art in the church.
The chapel at the side of the church was open…a very rare occurence.
Families gathered for the celebration.
There was a little procession from the chapel to the church.
The ceremony went well.
A special day needs a special haircut.
I’m sure everyone who took part enjoyed their day.
