Corpus Christi

I can confirm that the procession for Corpus Christi in Bigastro will be on Sunday. Those of you who have visited the town in the last couple of days will have seen the preparations taking place.

On Sunday morning they will start laying out the carpet which forms the centrepiece in the square by the church. The picture which forms the central part of the carpet has already been produced using dyed grains of rice. The surrounding will be made up of greenery and flower petals laid out from large paper drawings transferred with chalk to the paving. It is a time consuming process that requires two things, a lack of rain and no wind.

Sunday evening there will be a special mass in the church followed by the candle lit procession around the town. Mass will be at 7:30pm.
