Catholic journalist and photographer Jeffrey Bruno also posted his experience at the event.

He said some processed “miles and miles” back to their parishes with the torches aflame.

“The faith is alive and well on the dirty streets of Brooklyn,” Bruno wrote on Instagram. “While that might seem an unlikely statement, there’s pictures to prove it.”
