La Selva will debate on faith and tradition on May 7 and 8

The Castell de la Selva del Camp will host the X Congrés de Confraries de Setmana Santa de Catalunya on the weekend of May 7 and 8, a meeting to share, learn about and discover various traditional and organizational aspects of religious celebrations on the passion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. After taking over in Lleida (2017) and having postponed its completion last year due to Covid-19, the Reial Congregació de la Puríssima Sang de la Selva has organized a congress that was born under the motto «Sentim la Setmana Holy». It evokes both the aspect of feelings and that of music, especially significant and rooted in the celebrations of the municipality.

This is the first time that the congress is held outside a capital, a fact that acknowledges the history of the Selvatan brotherhood, which dates back to the end of the 16th century, as well as its processions on Good Friday – Traditional Festival. d’Interès Nacional– and its Stations of the Cross to Calvari, cataloged as Element Festiu Patrimonial d’Interès Nacional.

The program of the meeting includes presentations, an exhibition of local steps and mysteries, a musical concert and special performances. For more information, you can contact the Confraria de la Sang (confrariadelasang@gmail.com) or access the website laselvadelcamp.cat/site/confrarialasang.
