Accompanied by many faithful, the “Virgen de la Candelaria” left the sanctuary on January 26 at 10am towards the “Teatro del Pueblo”, on the premises of the Expo Fair Valladolid, where a Sunday Mass was celebrated.

Hundreds of people waited there for the arrival of the Virgin, which was taken to the altar placed on the stage, where Presbyter Jose Gilberto Perez Ceh, Parish of St. Servacio, welcomed all the faithful and the municipal authorities.

Maria Olga Ku Noh, Maya ethnic group queen, was in the front row, along with a group of catholic nuns.

Mayor of Valladolid Roger Alcocer Garcia, was accompanied by Xitlali Sánchez Aguilar, Queen of the Fair and some other municipal councilors, including Justo Herrera Silva and Teresa Mac Loria, who listened attentively to the priest’s words.

Father Perez Ceh said that those present had the privilege to celebrate this mass with the Virgin of  Candelaria.

“She is here today to enjoy with us this ceremony organized on her honor, because the Virgin Mary is the reason of all this celebration”, he said.

At the end of the Eucharistic celebration the virgin remained there for a few minutes so the faithful could venerate her. Afterwards, she was taken back to her sanctuary in the church of Candelaria.
