Easter comes alive in downtown Guadalajara

Guadalajara city fathers are hoping for a record number of visitors over the peak Easter period and, for the second year running, the Archbishopric of Guadalajara will stage a mini Passion Play in the historic center.

pg7aBefore this, a Palm Sunday (March 24) Mass is held at noon at the Metropolitan Cathedral, and on Maundy Thursday (March 28), the faithful take their annual visit to seven downtown churches: the Metropolitan Cathedral and the churches of San Agustin, Santa Teresa, Nuestra Señora de la Merced, Santa Maria de Gracia, San Francisco and San Aranzazu. The seven-church visit commemorates Christ’s departure from the Last Supper and his walk through the Garden of Gethsemane, where he was ultimately betrayed by Judas Iscariot.

The Good Friday (March 29) Passion Play (Viacrucis) reenacting Jesus’s last days will be held on a stage in front of the Cathedral and begins at 9 a.m.
