From this Sunday, the parish churches of Xàbia will be hosting an extensive programme to observe the special days of Semana Santa, Holy Week, a special time for Christians which takes on a special relevance.

Unlike last year when the event took place in full confinement, the churches of San Bartolomé and Nuestra Señora de Loreto have adapted their own celebrations for these dates to guarantee the safety of all participants. Thus, the acts that traditionally involve a greater gathering of people, such as the Stations of the Cross or the Palm Sunday or Good Friday processions, will not be taking place. Neither are those prayer meetings that usually take place at night beyond the current curfew.

However, the usual celebrations will be held inside the churches with limited capacities and in full compliance with the preventive and disinfection measures. And, to ensure the viability of the current health regulations, some schedules have been modified out of prudence and precaution.
