San Pedro Roman Catholics celebrate Easter - 04/19/17 11:36 AM
San Pedro Roman Catholics annually observe Easter as the holiest time of the year. With many events scheduled by the San Pedro Roman Catholic Church, ‘Holy Week’ was marked with special observances. Ushered in by the 40-day Lenten season, the Holy Week is not only celebrated as the last week of Lent, but it marks a time when Christians observe Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection.
On Holy Saturday, a Divine Mercy Chaplet, and an Easter Vigil Mass took place. On Easter Sunday, which marked the beginning of the Easter Octave, began with the “Encuentro” at 7AM. Many Catholics rejoiced as it commemorated the resurrection of Christ. The Easter Octave will end with an outdoor Divine Mercy Service on Sunday, April 23rd at Central Park. The San Pedro Traffic Department advises the public that Barrier Reef Drive will be closed to all vehicular traffic, including bicycles, from 8:30AM on Sunday, April 23rd until the mass has culminated.
