More Photos from Enthronement of Holy Face at St. Francis of Assisi Church in East Palo Alto, California

Fr. Lawrence Goode, Pastor of St. Francis of Asissi Church, giving spanish language commentary for Power Point slide presentation before the Mass, Procession and Enthronement Ceremony.  The Power Point presentation was prepared by Fr. Carmine Cucinelli, O.F.M., Cap., Rector of the Shrine of the Holy Face of Manoppello, with technical assistance from Sr. Petra-Maria Steiner.  This presentation is a great help in understanding in a short time the story of the Holy Face of Manoppello.  We are very grateful to Fr. Carmine and Sr. Petra-Maria for allowing us to use it.  

Here it can be seen how the church of St. Francis has tried to emulate the Shrine of the Holy Face of Manoppello in displaying the Holy Face in a prominent place above the tabernacle where it can be seen at all Masses and whenever private visits are made to the Blessed Sacrament.

The joy of all during the procession after Mass and blessing by Fr. Goode with the Holy Face of the four directions around the parish and  all of the San Francisco Bay Area,

The sacred dance of joy and devotion before the Holy Face.

Thanks to Hanna Hoang for these photos.
