Processions are a frequent sight in Guatemala. Most celebrations and commemorations include a procession and gathering of community. It is common during Lent, which begins on February 18th this year, for special processions to be seen. 

The practice of the Way of the Cross is the same in the United States as it is in Burundi and Guatemala. This pilgrimage gives participants the opportunity to reflect and pray on the final days and hours in Christ’s life, and is shared by all our cultures.
