FIESTAS HONOURING XÀBIA'S TREASURED JESÚS NAZARENO CANCELLED

javeamigos.com | FIESTAS HONOURING XÀBIA'S TREASURED JESÚS NAZARENO CANCELLED

After discussion with mayor José Chulvi, the Cofradía de Jesús Nazareno has taken the decision to cancel the traditional festivities planned to honour the town's treasured image of Jesús Nazareno at the end of April and beginning of May. Their statement said that health crisis caused by the spread of COVID-19 has led to this difficult decision but it is one that is responsible and consistent with the current situation.

They added that they regret the inconvenience that may be caused to third parties but want to reiterate their commitment to the health of the people and, above all, their willingness to follow all the recommendation that come from the local council and the health authorities in relation to COVID-19.

In response to the cancellation, devotees in the town have started to decorate their balconies with the image of Jesús Nazareno. It's interesting to note that the history of Xàbia notes that the population of Xàbia prayed to the image for salvation from salvation from a cholera epidemic that was sweeping through the region in 1834. Whether by divine intervention or coincidence, records show that there were no more deaths from cholera in the town and in gratitude, the chapel of Calvario was improved in 1847, given its distinctive blue dome and, fiestas dedicated in its honour were established. It's no surprise that the devoted are starting to pray to the treasured image once again.
