St. Therese of Lisieux Catholic Church celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Cisne, a patroness of the Loja province of Ecuador, with its Spanish-speaking parishioners this weekend. 

On Sunday, at least 100 people took part in a procession of the statue of Our Lady of Cisne, or Virgin de el Cisne, to Lions Field, where an outdoor Mass was celebrated. But the procession had begun earlier in the weekend, with a walk that set out from Amagansett at 11 p.m. Friday and ended at St. Therese by dawn on Saturday.
