The Rocío world can now dream.
DATES FOR EL ROCÍO 2022. After the pandemic caused the cancellation of two pilgrimages and the Virgin of El Rocío remains in Almonte.
The Matriz Brotherhood will meet with the authorities of the Plan Romero due to the improvement in the health situation.
The Matriz Brotherhood will begin organizing the 2022 pilgrimage before the end of this year. There will be a meeting with the authorities of the Plan Romero after the improvement in the health situation.
The president of the Matriz of Almonte, Santiago Padilla, has shared these plans in an interview with the program Andalucía Directo on Canal Sur Televisión, showing the optimism that exists within the organization for the upcoming year.
In his statements, Padilla states that “we will start working for the 2022 pilgrimage,” among other reasons because, after two years without celebration, “the machinery is not greased.” “There are many new officials who are not familiar with the Plan Romero,” referred the president of the Matriz.
This operation is responsible for the safety of the pilgrims and the affiliate brotherhoods that travel through the paths of Andalusia leading to the Almonte village, as well as ensuring the smooth development of the events in El Rocío. For this reason, a meeting will be held with the authorities of the Plan Romero before the end of 2021 to prepare for the 2022 pilgrimage.
According to Padilla, this meeting will take place due to the improvement in the health situation, which suggests that Pentecost will be celebrated in the customary way by the Rocío devotees, as it was done until 2019. However, it will be necessary for the Blanca Paloma to be transferred to her sanctuary in the marshland since August 2019, as she has remained in the parish of Almonte, where she is usually taken every seven years.
The fact that such a meeting is planned and the preparation for the pilgrimage is being discussed is a sign of hope, as this year any gatherings were ruled out due to the persistence of the pandemic, which made any mass pilgrimage unviable.
