Purísima Mass at Piedras y Olas

Purísima is a December holiday that is unique to Nicaragua. It is the celebration of the conception of the Virgin Mary. The festivities begin in late November and continue through mid December. Masses are held throughout San Juan del Sur in different barrios (neighborhoods.) On this day, Piedras y Olas was fortunate to have their own mass. The employees of Piedras y Olas arranged an altar for the Virgin Mary and Padre Arturo came and conducted the mass.
