JESUS NAZARENO - TREASURED IMAGE CARRIED DOWN THIS SUNDAY
La Baixada will take place on Sunday 19th March, the Third Sunday of Lent

Monday 13th March 2017

JAVEA NEWS | Fiesta - Jesus Nazareno

The treasured image of Jesús Nazareno will be carried down from its home in the blue-domed Calvario chapel to the heart of the historic centre in the traditional "bajada" - the "descent" - this Sunday 19th March, the Third Sunday of Lent.

The solemn candle-lit procession will make its way down from the chapel along the winding Via Crucis and then into the town along Carrer del Calvario to the church of San Bartolomé where it will remain until Wednesday May 3rd when it will be carried back to its home.

The Ladies Guild of Jesús Nazareno, who are responsible for organising the liturgical acts which accompany the solemn procession, presented their programme to mayor José Chulvi at the Ayuntamiento de Xàbia. It confirmed that members of the parish clergy and the local authority will leave the church square at 6.30pm. The procession, which will includes members of the general public of Xàbia, will leave the chapel at around 7.00pm to accompany the image down to the church.

On Monday 20th March at 12 noon, there will be a solemn mass sung in honour of Jesús Nazareno and on the same day the novena, nine days of devotional prayer, will begin.

This year is the 250th anniversary of the arrival of the treasured image of Jesús Nazareno in Xàbia, a gift from the Duchess of Medinaceli in gratitude for the town's tribute on the birth of her son in 1767. Both the Ladies Guild and the Brotherhood have prepared a special commemorative programme for the fiestas which honour the image in late April and early May.
