Cuaresma (Lent) in La Merced
photos by Lois and Don Porter

At La Merced, our neighborhood church, the Brotherhood creates a new carpet inside the church in front of the statue of Christ every Thursday during Lent. The "huerta" remains in place for the week, and is replaced with a new "huerta" the following week.
