Santa Margarita, or Saint Margaret of Antioch, also known as Marina in the Orthodox Church, is celebrated on 20 July. This year, the date falls on a Sunday. To celebrate, we are going to have a short procession with our saint, from the Roman Catholic iglesia parroquial (parish church) of Es Castell to the church, or chapel, of Santa Margarita. This will begin at 17:30.
In preparation for this event, the statue of Santa Margarita, which normally resides in the church, has been carefully cleaned, and mounted on the platform, or anda, on which she will be taken in procession.
Following the procession, there will be an ecumenical service to celebrate Santa Margarita’s day in the church that bears her name.
