Cancelled: 2020 Feast Day Celebration at Pecos Pueblo

Pecos, NM: Pecos National Historical Park has cancelled this year’s Feast Day at Pecos Pueblo in an effort to support federal, state, and local efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and to adhere to the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Feast Day at Pecos Pueblo, which usually takes place every August, represents the fulfillment of a long-standing promise.  Before leaving Pecos Pueblo in 1838, the last inhabitants of Pecos Pueblo entrusted a special painting to St. Anthony’s Parish in the Village of Pecos. This portrait depicts the patron saint bestowed upon the Mission of Pecos in the 1620s. This year would have marked the 50th anniversary of the local community fulfilling its promise to perpetually honor the saint by celebrating a feast day mass in the remains of her final church.
