The Vallarta Botanical Garden’s new chapel, Nuestra Señora del Jardín (Our Lady of the Garden) will be opened to the public on March 20th with a special ceremony to bless and dedicate this sanctuary within a natural paradise.
All are invited to join us for this special occasion. The mission of the Nuestra Señora del Jardín is to rejuvenate and inspire the human spirit to live in harmony with the natural world while promoting peace and understanding among diverse cultures and faiths.
Almost 500 years ago, the first Christian church in the Municipio de Cabo Corrientes was blessed by Catholic missionaries on a Palm Sunday. The ceremony of blessing and dedication for the Nuestra Señora del Jardín chapel has been planned to coincide with this auspicious historic event.
Our blessing event will commence with a Palm Sunday Palm Walk Procession starting from the Hacienda de Oro Visitor Center's Hall of Flowers Ballroom at 1:00 pm. The blessing of the Chapel will follow at about 2:00.
Several local clergy, including Father Saul of the Iglesia el Refugio, have generously donated their time to make this day a very special occasion for all. Chapel patrons and Garden board members will be available afterwards to speak with garden guests about this project and uses for this new facility.
