Feast of the Virgin of Suyapa

The next Saturday 3 February, coinciding with the feast of Our Lady of Suyapa, Patroness of Honduras, It will be held at 17:30h San Juan del Hospital one Misa in his honor, to which they are invited all Hondurans living in Valencia.

In 1925, Pope Pius XI declared patroness of Honduras under the title of Our Lady of Suyapa and declared 3 February as his feast day. In the decade of 1950 a basilica was built next to the chapel, named Basilica of Suyapa (in Tegucigalpa). Currently, the statuette of the Virgin spends most of the time in the chapel but every year moves to the Basilica of Suyapa on the day of your celebration to accommodate the crowds of people attending view, both Honduras and Central America.
