Cuaresma (Lent) Cathedral Vigils
photos by Lois and Don Porter

On the first Friday of Lent, we visited the Cathedral of San Jose, and observed the carpet at the front altar, along with the impressive crucified Christ replacing the usual retablo. We also observed the Hermandad building a carpet in front of Cristo Sepultado, and a Via Cruz procession with schoolgirls. The following week, another school group revitalized and added to the hermandad's carpet.
