Religious Celebrations in honour of the Madonna della Quercia in Bettola

From Sunday 26 August to 30 September 2012 Bettola honours the Patron of the Val Nure

Religious Celebrations in honour of the Madonna della Quercia in Bettola
Every year on the last Sunday in August the statue of the Madonna della Quercia "descends" from her throne and is placed in the presbytery of the shrine dedicated to her.

This is the start every year of the month dedicated to Our Lady of the Oak, patron of the Nure Valley and its people.

On the last Sunday in September, with the equally fascinating rite of the "ascent", the Sacred Image is returned to its original position.


Some dates and times for the celebrations in 2012:

Sunday 26 August at 4.30 pm at the Shrine of the Beata Vergine della Quercia: Holy Rite of the Descent

Sunday 2 September Feast of the Blessed Virgin of the Quercia
The times of the religious services are those of a Sunday: 8.30 am (in the shrine church), 10.15 (in San Bernardino) and 11.00 (in the shrine church).
In the afternoon, High Mass aat 4.30 pm and the Procession with the Statue of the Virgin through Piazza Colombo and along the streets of the town. Usually the civic authorities and the mayors of the various mumicipalites of the valley take part in the patronal celebrations.

In preparation for the patronal festival, every evening at 8.45 pm there is the recitation of the Rosary followed by Adoration of the Eucharist in the shrine.

Sunday 30 September the Marian Month concludes with the Holy Rite of the Ascent, when the Statue of the Madonna returns to her throne.
