The Holy Week celebrations started today with the commemoration of Palm Sunday. Despite the torrential rain which effected several areas it was possible to  hold the traditional procession  followed by Mass  in the Mayan hamlet of Sarita, situated deep in the rain forest of Izabal.

Several villagers carrying palm leaves  participated in the procession which also included a child riding  a donkey. This commemorates Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem.  Several religious functions will be held during the Holy Week the most important of which is Saturday’s evening Easter’s vigil mass.
