An outdoor procession was held in honor of St. Rocco Aug. 1, 2021, at St. Rocco Church in Glen Cove. The procession occurred on the final day of the parish’s annual five-day feast, which was canceled in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic. St. Rocco’s intercession traditionally has been invoked by those seeking protection from the plague and all infectious diseases. (Catholic News Service photos by Gregory A. Shemitz)
