Santacruzan/ Flores de Mayo

Submitted By Madelane Ramos

The Filipino Community of St. Joseph/Old Mission San Jose (TFCSJ) in Fremont celebrates the Flores De Mayo and Santacruzan event. This festivity is one of the most celebrated religious Filipino traditions in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It showcases our culture's devotion to her, and also commemorates the finding the Holy Cross by Queen Helena and her son Emperor Constantine.

TFCSJ will be celebrating this event for the whole month of May. We will be dedicating every 12:30 p.m. Sunday mass, beginning on May 3, 2009, for our Flores de Mayo with flower & prayer offerings to Our Lady. This Marian celebration will be highlighted by the Santacruzan event on Saturday, May 30, 2009. Our event begins with a procession at 10:00 a.m, Eucharistic celebration at 11:00 a.m. at the Old Mission San Jose Church.

If anyone is interested to participate please contact Greta Lazaro at 510 304-3900 or Madelane Ramos 650 796-1078.
