Photos & Video: Santacruzan, Flores De Mayo

May 27, 2018

[Updated with photos] The Filipino Community celebrated “Flores de Mayo” and “Santacruzan” today [May 27] with a church service and a procession that took place in Hamilton.

In advance of the event, a spokesperson said, “Today the Filipino community in Bermuda will celebrate two popular festivals from the Philippines – Flores de Mayo [Flowers of May] and Santacruzan [after ‘Santa Cruz,’ or the Holy Cross], both being celebrated together in the month of May by Filipino Catholics.


“Flores de Mayo is a Catholic flower festival in honour of Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ. This feast is marked with the offering of flowers [which abundantly blooms in the month of May] to the Virgin Mary at the altar in the Church, every day for the whole month of May as a Marian devotion.”

We will have a photo gallery later on and in the meantime the live video replay is below.
