The 4th annual Misa Jibara took place this past Saturday, August 31st at Fiesta Boricua. Unlike other years, this year’s Misa Jibara took place at the main stage of California and Division raising its importance in Fiesta Boricua. At a Misa Jibara, those who convey the church’s message are not the priests but rather a traditional “jibaro” musical group. This year Misa Jibara was organized by the municipal of Jayuya, Puerto Rico. The stage was decorated with a beautiful painting of the Virgin of Monserrate Patron Saint of Jayuya and featured young ladies dressed in traditional Puerto Rican outfits. It also included music performed by Jayuya’s musical group, Grupo Tipico Armonia Cultura. Father Raul Morales Berrios, celebrating the 25th anniversary of his ordination, led the mass.
