JESÚS NAZARENO 2019 - TOWN CELEBRATES 'LA BAIXADA' THIS SUNDAY
The treasured image will be carried down to the heart of the historic centre

Friday 22nd March 2019

JAVEA NEWS | JESÚS NAZARENO 2019 - TOWN CELEBRATES 'LA BAIXADA' THIS SUNDAY

This Sunday 24th March at 7.00pm, as is traditional on the Third Sunday of Lent, the town's treasured image of Jesús Nazareno will be carried from the iconic blue-domed chapel of Calvario and taken in procession down into the heart of the historic centre of Xàbia to take position inside the church of San Bartolomé.

The descent - known locally as 'la baixada' - is one of the main events of the religious calendar in the town, the image carried high on the shoulders of the brotherhood and accompanied by hundreds of Xabieros lighting the way with tall candles, some walking barefoot. Bearing the baton of office as the perpetual mayor of the town, it will be followed by municipal officials and the parish clergy in a slow, solemn procession through the town. In front will be another image, that of the Virgen de los Dolores, and both will stand in the heart of the historic centre until May 3rd.

The religious programme which accompanies the arrival of the images in the town has been organised by the Cofradía de Señoras and will include two solemn masses on Monday 25th March and Sunday 31st March as well as a novena, nine successive days of devotional prayer. The Cofradía met with mayor José Chulvi and councillor Kika Mata (Services) to deliver the programme of events and finalise some organisational issues before inviting the people to Xàbia to participate in this special annual occasion as well as the other celebrations.

Xàbia celebra este domingo la procesión de Bajada del Nazareno

Este domingo 24 de marzo  – como marca la tradición, tercer domingo de Cuaresma- la imagen de Jesús Nazareno dejará la ermita del Calvario para ser bajada en procesión hasta la iglesia de San Bartolomé de Xàbia. Es una de las citas principales del calendario religioso de la villa y participan cientos de fieles, además de las autoridades municipales y el clero parroquial.

La procesión de la venerada imagen y de la Virgen de los Dolores saldrá del Calvario a las 19 horas para recorrer el itinerario de costumbre hasta el pueblo, donde permanecerá hasta el 3 de mayo.

El programa de celebraciones litúrgicas que acompañan su llegada lo organiza la Cofradía de Señoras e incluyen dos misas solemnes el lunes 25 y el domingo 31 de marzo (ambas a las 12 horas), además de un novenario.

Hoy algunas de las cofrades se han reunido con el alcalde, José Chulvi, y la concejala de Servicios, Kika Mata, para entregarles el programa y ultimar algunas cuestiones organizativas. Desde la Cofradía de Señoras invitan a toda la población a participar de la procesión y demás celebraciones.
