The Virgen del Rocío will stay in Almonte until 2021 due to the coronavirus

The president of the Mother Brotherhood, Santiago Padilla, has communicated that due to the information available to the Mother Brotherhood, the Virgin will not be able to move to El Rocío until next year. In his own words, "in these circumstances and with the information we have, nothing suggests that the Blessed Virgin can move from Almonte until next year."

The president has shown a clear support at a press conference, to avoid rumors of the possible transfer of the Virgin on the date of Rocío Chico. Therefore, the events that were going to be held may be moved to the dates corresponding to the Romería del Rocío 2021.

Padilla has confirmed the reopening of the Parroquia de la Asunción, the temple where the Virgen del Rocío has been located since last August. The opening is scheduled for Wednesday, May 13. We are waiting for an ozone cleaning machine and to have the necessary infrastructure. Therefore, when it is opened, you will not be able to stay in the temple; and two circuits will be created to contemplate the Virgin, one of them 'preferred' for older and vulnerable people.

The hours will be adjusted to those indicated by the Government, from 10 to 14 and from 17 to 19 hours. The Parish will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays to avoid the "call effect". It will also be closed for cults, which can be seen through the media and social networks. The Parent Brotherhood advises against assisting people with previous pathologies. It will be necessary to enter with the mask, "to protect and protect ourselves", and the use of gloves is recommended.

On June 2, as Padilla has confirmed, these standards that obey technical criteria will be reviewed, looking for safety and health. The president's final appeal is "to the prudence of all"; therefore, they ask for "understanding, after exemplary behavior on the part of the people of Almonte, so that we continue along the same lines."

The president of the Matrix has also explained the reasons why the services scheduled to celebrate Pentecost (the Extraordinary Ninth that will begin on May 22 and the Pentecost Mass) will finally be held behind closed doors, "in coherence with everything the indicated, is because only the municipality of Almonte has 27,000 inhabitants, and the Parent Brotherhood with 12,000 brothers, plus the people who would foreseeably join from other places ».
