Good Friday, Procession of Jesús Sepultado from San Felipe Church.
The Image of Jesús Sepultado, arrived San Felipe’s village in 1670, coming from a hamlet called San Juan Perdido (devastated by an epidemic).
Originally, the image represented a crucified Christ, later in time, it was modified to represent a buried Jesus.
The image was consecrated on May 8th, 1986 by Monsignor Próspero Penados del Barrio, Guatemala’s Archbishop at the time.
