Sunday Mass, presided over by the Vicar General of the Diocese of Valencia and the opening of the Diocesan exhibition was held in the Municipal House of Culture, and during the week different conferences are happening in the Parish of San Miguel.
But it will be Saturday when the central act of this meeting will be celebrated, with the great procession that will cross the streets of Dénia in which it is expected that 4.000 members of the 32 participating brotherhoods will participate around XNUMX, that they will take their images to the streets, among which stands out the image of the Holy Blood, which in an extraordinary way will leave the church of the Augustinians to participate in the parade.
