Religious Processions as a Ritual in the Course of the Year
During certain religious festivities and feast days, religious processions are held in Parcines and Rablà.
The entire village, along with its relative unions and clubs, such as the local band, the Schützen and volunteer fire brigade, choirs, and local inhabitants all participate at the event. Thus, processions are a popular and colorful public spectacle, as well as a firmly rooted religious ritual!
The traditional and colorful rogations lead through the village and stop at several stations, where the partakers pray and sing. The priest walks along under a baldachin while the partakers carry relevant flags, statues, and other Christian symbols.
The important and most spectacular processions in our community are:
• the Josefi procession (in March)
• the Corpus Christi procession (in June)
• the Sacred Heart Procession (in June)
• the Thanksgiving procession (in October)
