The El Paso City Council finalizes the preparations for the celebration of the Cultural Week of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, with different symbolic acts that combine the art and devotion that passers-by profess for their holiday. Although the Image will not procession for the second consecutive year nor will this event be enjoyed in all its splendor due to the health situation, the council has designed a program in which the neighborhoods and groups of the municipality will once again be protagonists.
This morning, an arch has been placed on the altar of the Church of Our Lady of Bonanza, developed jointly by the neighborhoods of Tajuya, La Rosa, El Paso de Abajo, Camino Viejo, Fátima, Tenerra and El Calvario.
“This edition will also continue to be conditioned by the pandemic and health security measures, which still do not allow us to hold traditional events with large numbers of people. However, the culture and faith of our people will come together again in a week of events with which we will worship the Sacred Heart of Jesus ”, explains the mayor of El Paso, Sergio Rodríguez, thanking the neighborhoods and groups for the wonderful reception of this initiative.
“Although we will not see arches, tapestries and rugs dressing the main streets of the town, our neighbors display a message of unity and hope to be able to leave this difficult stage behind. Different techniques and craft styles distinguish the work of each neighborhood, which today they extol in a laborious work worked together ”, highlights the Councilor for Culture and Festivities, Irinova Hernández.
