The new image of the Virgin of Carmen arrives at her hermitage surrounded by her faithful followers (08/04/2018)

The pilgrimage in honor of the Virgin of Carmen has been presided over by her new image.

An ancient carving of the early twentieth century, dated around 1920, about 60 centimeters high that has been donated by a collective Lumbrerense.

Despite requiring restoration work, which will be carried out later, his most devoted followers have wanted to carry it to his hermitage in Vilerda to be able to celebrate this meeting.

And there is a great devotion around this religious figure due, in part, to its history and trajectory.

We will remember that in the last flood that took place in 2012 the size of the Virgin was washed away by the waters.

Recovered fortuitously days later, a group of lumbrerenses began, in collaboration with the municipality of Puerto Lumbreras, the construction of a small chapel to house the image of the Virgen del Carmen.

Two other donated by residents of the area were added to the image found and restored, with the three images usurped on the eve of San Juan last year.

In this way a new donation makes possible the arrival of the new image in its place, with special veneration on the part of its most faithful devotees.

The coexistence of this pilgrimage, although of recent celebration, begins to be implemented as a tradition in the municipality coinciding with the arrival of spring.

A tour that has begun in the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary with a chocolate at 11.00 in the Plaza de Juan Pablo II, and has traveled to his hermitage located in the Vilerda.

After the celebration of Holy Mass, there has been a charitable rice that is always destined to some collective Lumbrerense.

This year all funds raised will be destined to the Royal and Illustrious Brotherhood Stmo.

Christ of the Faith and Mary Stma.

de la Piedad, organization that has decided to allocate part of these funds to the restoration of the size.
