A priest and deacon rode on a makeshift altar to bless the city of St. Martinville.

The Lafayette Diocese posted several photos of Father Michael Champagne and Deacon John Joseph of the Community of Jesus Crucified blessing the city of St. Martinville.

This all happened on the Feast of the Annunciation, while many were in the homes. The blessings could not have come at a better time as we continue to see more positive cases of COVID-19 in the area.

While on the procession, the religious leaders read scripture, prayed the rosary, and sang hymns from the trailer that they were on.

Here are more photos below.
