In the Latin American projects we serve, Holy Week is a time for family, reflection, cultural traditions and ceremonies remembering the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Luis Cocon, CFCA communications liaison for Guatemala, sends us pictures and an account of Holy Week as it’s happening right now in Guatemala.
Please note: Our Kansas City office will be closed March 28 and 29 for Holy Thursday and Good Friday.
A mystical feeling is in the air as Holy Week processions begin in the Guatemalan city of Antigua, set against a backdrop of colonial architecture, cobblestone streets and volcanoes.
Decorations and elaborate handicrafts adorn wooden platforms on which religious images are carried.
