The march was sponsored by the Associazione Cattolica Italiana Miraculous Medal di Ridgewood as well as eight Catholic churches in Ridgewood, Glendale, Middle Village and Brooklyn and related organizations. Among the participants was Bishop Nicholas Di Marzio (not pictured), who celebrated Mass prior to the procession.
