  1. On Holy Thursday a procession in held in the chapel. Boys and girls are dressed up very nicely and march in pairs round the church with a man carrying a cross at their heads. Then during the day the altar is lit up with candles and decorated with flowers and during the day mass servers are minding fearing anything would go on fire.
