Mary Alexa of Baltimore pretends to pray like an angel as she waits for the processional in honor of St. Gabriel, patron saint of Abruzzi, to begin outside of St. Leo the Great Roman Catholic Church in the Little Italy neighborhood of Baltimore, MD on Saturday, August 23, 2009.
Following the processional, a small ceremony was held to officially open the second day of the Feast of St. Gabriel Italian Festival. The festival honors St. Gabriel, patron saint of Abruzzi, an area which many of Baltimore’s Italians emigrated.
