The Bishopric of Higüey, with the support of Banco Popular Dominicano, announced the celebration of the second edition of the television and virtual vigil “For the love of the Virgin”, which will begin at midnight next Friday, January 21.
“Prayer is the key that opens the door of faith” is the phrase that identifies the ceremony, which will be held in honor of the Virgin of Altagracia live from the Basilica of Higüey and will be broadcast on more than 15 television stations.
This vigil seeks that, from midnight until dawn, thousands of Dominicans unite from afar to honor the protective and spiritual mother of the Dominican Republic, through prayers, testimonies and songs.
The activity will begin at 12:00 midnight, with an opening mass in charge of Monsignor Antonio Camilo, bishop emeritus of La Vega, and then the vigil will begin, in charge of Father Evaristo Areché, rector of the Basilica of Higüey.
During the early hours of the morning, there will be moments of devotion inspired by blessings, miracles, prayer, music, family and renewal of faith. In addition, a group of 10 young artists will be in charge of the “Serenatas de madrugada”.
The transmission will have unique moments starring the outstanding pianist and composer, maestro Rafael Solano, singer Maridalia Hernández, the Koribe group, directed by Nadia Nicola, and the National Symphony Orchestra, directed by maestro José Antonio Molina.
At 8:00 a.m., the ceremony “Thank you Virgin of my soul” will give way to the celebration of the official mass of the Day of Altagracia, in charge of Monsignor Jesús Castro Marte, bishop of the Diocese of Higüey.
The vigil will have more than 15 television channels united in a national chain, which will have Color Visión as its parent channel, under the production of Edilenia Tactuk, and will be hosted by Celinés Díaz and Cinthia Ortiz.
