Is "showcases" used correctly?

This Ceremony showcases my unceasing Buddhist practice as well as my devotion to the Buddha since I became a priest.

Is “showcases” used correctly?

I wouldn’t say it’s incorrect, but it depends on what you want to say.

A person might showcase their achievements in applying for a new job.
A company’s presentation might showcase a new product.

So in showcasing something, you’re displaying it in a highly favorable light. The rest of the text seems to me to carry a humility that would be inconsistent with “showcase”.

Words like “shows”, “exhibits”, or “demonstrates” might be more appropriate., but it’s hard to say without knowing the relationship between the ceremony and the admirable qualities.

Yes. The word ‘showcase’ is used as a verb with the singular subject, so ‘The ceremony showcases …’ is correct.
