THE Mayor of Mojacar, Rosa Maria Cano, attended, on behalf of the town of Mojacar, the solemn Mass celebrated in the Parish of San Joaquín de Garrucha.

This event was organised by the central office of the Guardia Civil in the town to honour of the feast of the Virgin del Pilar.

Community groups, local leaders and representatives of the Guardia Civil also attended the celebration in honour of the officers and the institution across Spain. The image of the Virgin Mary, the patroness of the Guardia Civil, is located in the central altar of the Parish of San Joaquin, and has traditionally and symbolically been associated with the Spanish Guardia Civil. Floral offerings were left as a mark of respect.

Celebrations took place across Spain, and in Mojacar, a small tribute was paid to Second Lieutenant of the Guardia Civil, Cristóbal Carvajal, who will soon retire and was attending the commemoration for the last time an active member of this armed institute.

The Guardia Civil is Spain’s oldest law enforcement agency and is regularly ranked as the Spanish institution citizens value the most.
