GUAGUA – The Im­mac­u­late Con­cep­cion Par­ish here is host­ing its an­nual Grand Mar­ian Pro­ces­sion and Ex­hibit in cel­e­bra­tion of the town’s Fi­esta on De­cem­ber 8.

Ca­madero Mark del Rosario said that the pro­ces­sion was held yes­ter­day even­ing at the town’s old pro­ces­sional route while the open­ing of the ex­hibit was held in the morn­ing and will last un­til be­fore the fi­esta cel­e­bra­tions.

On dis­play will be images com­ing from dif­fer­ent art col­lec­tors de­pict­ing scenes from the bib­li­cal life of Mary and from pop­u­lar tra­di­tion. The ex­hibit fea­tures the images of Mary un­der the ti­tles and hon­ors ac­corded by the Ro­man Catholic Church and the peo­ple and com­mu­ni­ties all over the world.

The images range from the events in the life of Mary both from the Bi­ble and Ro­man Catholic tra­di­tion, as well as pop­u­lar ti­tles and rep­re­sen­ta­tions unique to the Philip­pines.

As for the pro­ces­sion, images were brought in from dif­fer­ent re­li­gious art en­thu­si­asts from the dif­fer­ent barangays here and neigh­bor­ing parishes in Guagua, Sas­muan, and Ba­color for the event.

Del Rosario said that the event hopes to fur­ther pop­u­lar­ize the dif­fer­ent devo­tions to Mary and bring more Catholics to ap­pre­ci­ate Mar­ian devo­tions.
