31,000 Gather to Pray and March

The largest gathering of independent Catholics in the United States, under the Catholic Church in America's Hialeah, Florida parish, San Lazaro.

Outside the Shrine of San Lazaro

Monday, December 17th: worshippers gather just before 6PM to prepare for mass and a 5 mile procession through the streets of Hialeah, Florida.

The line continued...

The crowds were enormous for mass. The Feast of San Lazaro is one of the largest in Cuba, from whence many of the residents of this South Florida community hail.

The weather was perfect
This helped bring out the largest number of marchers, ever.
