The Virgen del Rocío receives its devotees

The town of Almonte met again yesterday with its Patron Saint, Our Lady of Rocío, after two months the parish church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción closed, due to confinement due to the state of alarm due to the pandemic and only being able to see it for televised broadcasts of daily services. An opening that was made in a Marian feast as significant as the feast of the Virgin of Fatima.

A moment for the meeting on a day in which he has only been visiting, since the mass and the prayer of the salve are still held behind closed doors followed by televised broadcasting and social networks of the Brotherhood Parent.

Some visits that can be made from Monday to Friday, since on weekends the parish of the Assumption will remain closed. The opening hours of the parish church are from 10:00 to 14:00 and from 17:00 to 19:00.

The entrance must be made with personal protection measures such as masks; At the entrance, the temperature of the people who are accessing is being taken and a hydrogel is available.

The services scheduled to celebrate the feast of Pentecost, the extraordinary ninth, from May 22 to 30, at 8:30 p.m., and the Pentecost mass, on May 31, at 10:00, will be held behind closed doors . The fundamental reason, according to the Parent Brotherhood, is because only the municipality of Almonte has 24,100 inhabitants, and the brotherhood itself with 12,000 brothers, plus the people who would foreseeably join from other places, the parish having a maximum capacity of 125 people seated, at 50% of its capacity, including the spaces necessary for the flows and movements to be ordered, with the minimum recommended distances. The church will also be closed on Saturday and Sunday and will reopen on Pentecost Monday at the established time.

Starting June 2, these standards will be reviewed based on how the pandemic curve evolves.

The Rociero Jubilee Year that ended on June 7 will continue in this situation until the end of the pandemic, as the Jubilee period has been extended by Pope Francis.

The Parent Brotherhood keeps open its solidarity campaign 'We all make Brotherhood', from its Charity delegation. Food is collected at the Museum of the Villa, mainly non-perishable products and items for personal hygiene and for children. Monday to Wednesday and Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. or Thursday and Friday afternoon, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

At the same time, he has invited the people of Almonte on this journey of preparation for the Easter of Pentecost, to decorate their facades, with pots and hangings, on the next days 17 and 24 May. Especially in the tours, both in town and in the village, that the Blessed Virgin would do on these dates when the procession through the streets of Almonte and the transfer to El Rocío would take place.

Given the suspension of the pilgrimage, the president of the Brotherhood, Santiago Padilla, has invited us to "offer this important sacrifice for all the people who are already suffering in the first line of battle the consequences of this pandemic that has disrupted all the plans of families, companies and institutions around the world. For the sick, for the mourners of the deceased, for the agents of health, the authority and all the work environments that are sustaining the system in these difficult circumstances ”.

The Virgin will remain in Almonte until the next pilgrimage in 2021, a fact that has not occurred for 207 years.
