Saints’ feast days draw extra visitors to Adeje 

ADEJE Council was extremely busy in the early part of the week, ensuring that the municipal cemetery was ready for the many extra visitors anticipated yesterday (Thursday) and today, with 1st-2nd November, marking the feast days of All Saints and All Souls respectively.

These holy days are celebrated nationally and internationally with extra masses, and families visiting cemeteries where their loved ones have been laid to rest.

Adeje cemetery was open to the public throughout the week from Tuesday, with workers making sure it was in top condition for visitors by cleaning, painting and planting new flowers in the various patios, etc.

Esther Rivero Vargas, the Councillor with responsibility for the area, said: “These have been important days, when we pay respect to those who have gone before us.

“And we know it’s essential that the cemetery is in top condition for visiting families, because it is a very relevant date for them.”

She added: “Our goal is always to make the place one of tranquillity and harmony.”

Extra services were staged throughout the borough on Wednesday and yesterday, while today (Friday), the following masses will be held: at Adeje Cemetery chapel at 9am, and at 6pm at Adeje Cemetery chapel, Armeñime and Fañabe, with a 7.30pm mass at La Caleta.
