torrent. The board of directors and cliffsnotes of the Brotherhood of the Verge del Rosari and Sant Lluís Gonzaga de Torrent has announced, in a statement, its decision not to celebrate the cycle of Auroras December 2020 and January 2021, “due to various restrictions and limitations established by the authorities because of the pandemic,” a tradition that has more than 300 years of history.
The cycle should have begun this Tuesday, the 8th, to conclude on January 6th, the day of the Epiphany of the Lord. Dawn is celebrated on Sundays between the two dates, as well as on December 26. It begins at 6 a.m. with singing in the streets and praying the rosary.
This celebration usually brings together a large number of the faithful, reaching more than 400 in some years. Hence, it has had to be suspended.
