Last Sunday, August 16, marked an important day for Maracena as San Joaquin was honored, the patron saint of the town. This holiday will be different than other years, however, as it was announced a few months ago. It is true that the coronavirus has made everything very difficult in recent months. The Maracena City Council decided to suspend the celebrations of its patron saint in June.
This means that the Maraceneros were unable to enjoy the festivities in San Joaquin this weekend. They will have to wait until 2021 if circumstances permit, to experience the same summer celebrations. On Sunday, the Solemn Eucharist, which was not a celebration, was held to honor the patron saint Maracena. This event was live broadcast on the internet, so everyone could watch it from their own homes. Covid-19 infections.
