Parishioners Sosúa celebrate Palm Sunday

On Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter weekend, Christians commemorate the joyful entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. Hundreds of parishioners of the parish of St. Anthony of Padua held a procession with palm branches in their hands, along the beach of Sosúa.

The procession ended at the church in Charamicos where Father Bernardo Vásquez and Father Benito read the Passion of Jesus. In the Catholic Church, Palm Sunday is traditionally celebrated with the blessing of palm branches at the beginning of the Mass. The priest blesses and sprinkles the palms with holy water. After the blessing starts a procession with traditional songs that remind of the people that shouted 'Hosanna' to welcome Jesus to Jerusalem. On Good Friday, Jesus was rejected by the same people. The people who shouted 'Hosanna' on Sunday shouted 'crucify Him' on Friday. After the Mass, the blessed palm branches were taken home by the parishioners to put them next to the crucifixes.

Dancercise Parque el Mirador

'Emily Watson School of Dance' held on Saturday afternoon, April 12 for the second time a dance marathon in the Parque El Mirador. At the park a stage was built and the street outside was used as a dance place. By four o'clock the dance marathon started. At the festival dozens of participants took part! The youngest was three years old and the oldest way over seventy. Emily and Carlos went on stage, assisted by a group of dancers, and showed the audience how to dance. Each dancer received a bottle of energy drink and it was necessary because it was very hot. Emily and Carlos demonstrated the reggaeton, salsa, bachata, merengue, hip hop and some other dance styles and dancers in the street just had to copy and follow. After two hours of non -stop dancing, with only a few drop-outs to regret, the marathon ended with loud cheers.

Then they had to wait for the jury results. The expert jury looked at the continuity, energy and the performance of the dance moves. At the end three certificates were handed out, one in each age group: child, teen and adult. The three winners also received a coupon for free Dancercise classes at the 'Emily Watson School of Dance'. It was a fantastic afternoon and Emily and Carlos of 'Emily Watson School of Dance' promised the enthusiastic audience that they will do it again next year. Next year there will be another Dancercise Marathon in Sosúa.
Finally, the management of Casa Marina Beach / Reef and the municipality of Sosúa should be thanked for their support.

People of Charamicos walking the Stations of the Cross

In the past weekend, the Catholic population of Charamicos of the parish of St. Anthony of Padua, in preparation for the Passover Feast, walked the Stations of the Cross. The procession was preceded by some volunteers who carried a large wooden cross.

The priest followed in the company of many believers. The procession ended on the basketball court Loma Bajita where a holy mass was performed and the believers received a small present.
The Way of the Cross (Via Crucis or Via Dolorosa in Latin) is a component of the tradition of the Christian Passover. It is an imitation of the passion of Christ from the courthouse (the palace of the Roman procurator Pontius Pilate) to Calvary, his place of execution. It is generally believed that St. Francis of Assisi, a friend of Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of Sosúa, propagated the walking of the Stations of the Cross in the Catholic world.
