Roman Catholics on Ambergris Caye celebrate Dia de San Pedro 2020
Honoring the island’s Patron Saint St. Peter, Catholic residents observed ‘El Dia de San Pedro’ on Monday, June 29th with holy mass, a boat and street procession plus the blessing of fishermen’s vessels that asks for a successful fishing season. The annual festivities will be different this year, without the usual extravaganza held at the Honourable Louis Sylvestre Sporting Complex often featuring local and international entertainment.
Events for the day began at 4AM with a Fisherman’s Mass, followed by breakfast an hour later. At 6AM a boat procession departed from the Municipal Dock heading to the Embarcadero (docking site) on the lagoon side. The procession was joined by another group of boats on the lagoon, making the gathering one of the largest in recent times.Click here to read the rest of the article and see LOTS more GREAT photos in the San Pedro Sun
