Almost 450 Catholics from around Perth gathered for the annual torchlight procession around Lake Monger on Friday night in honour of Our Lady of Lourdes.
In near-perfect weather, the group processed around the lake with a large statue of Our Lady of Lourdes while reciting the Rosary and singing Marian hymns.
The crowd included numerous families, youth and the elderly, as well as several priests and religious from the diocese.
Organiser Judy Woodward said it was great to see so many people take part.
“It just amazes me, every time I turn up,” she said. “We’ve had hot nights, we’ve had nights where the mosquitoes have been dreadful, but the [people] still come.”
Mrs Woodward, a member of the Legion of Mary for more than 20 years, said when she first organised the event 14 years ago, it was only meant to be a one-off.
“I did it for the Jubilee Year because no one was doing anything for Our Lady, so I decided we had to do something,” she said.
The event was an immediate success, and has continued to grow in popularity.
Mrs Woodward said she hoped the 3.5km procession would continue to be held annually for many years. “The people keep coming, so while they keep coming, we’ll run it,” she said.
