After the Mass, procession of the Blessed Sacrament around the village was made. Fr. Jean-Philippe gave the Benediction. Food was given to all either through a small contribution or freely. All in all the spirit of unity, fraternity and collaboration was felt that day. People were exhausted but happy because they felt that God has blessed them.
