Feast of San Juan


Bishop Octavio Cisneros celebrated the Mass of the Feast of St. John the Baptist at the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph June 24. Although St. John the Baptist is the patron of Puerto Rico, the Mass was a celebration of faith and cultural heritage for Mexican immigrants from San Juan Tianguismanalco, a municipality in the state of Puebla, Mexico. The folkloric group Tecuanes de Acatlán danced in honor of St. John in front of the Co-Cathedral. Then they lead a procession through the streets of Brooklyn. (Photos © Jorge Dominguez)
