With a request to God to help sick people, activities began to celebrate the day of San Judas Tadeo in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, which will be marked by health care to avoid more Covid-19 infections. Mass for the sick

Mazatlecos attended San Judas Tadeo, in the church that bears the same name, to commemorate their saint, thanking him for the complicated favors he granted them in the midst of this Covid-19 pandemic.

The Bishop of the Diocese in Mazatlán, Mario Espinosa Contreras, offered a mass in his honor, and incidentally took the opportunity to make confirmations of children, youth, and adults.

“We want to be a helping factor so that there are no infections,” stressed Hernández de la Torre

The festivities are suppressed, but no one is forbidden to express their faith, they are only oriented, Hernández de la Torre

People who have faith in Saint Jude and other saints are still the same, there is even a greater awakening now with the
pandemic, he said.
