By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Benque Viejo del Carmen is known for being a traditionally Catholic Town participating and engaging children, youths and the elderly in the beliefs and traditions.

On July 16, 2023, the Feast Day of Mount Carmel was celebrated around the world.

The name given to the Blessed Virgin Mary as the patroness of the Carmelite Order, particularly within the Catholic Church, is Our Lady of Mount Carmel, or Virgin of Carmel.

In Benque Viejo, the event was sponsored by Area Representative Jorge Espat and the Cayo West Executive Committee.

“We started with a delicious breakfast with the Rezadoras, followed by a congregación with uplifting marimba and mañanitas songs. The atmosphere was vibrant, honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel,” Espat said.

Espat thanked everyone who joined in the celebrations and encouraged them to carry the blessings and unity in their hearts until next year’s feast day.
