Guánica Mayor Ismael “Titi” Rodríguez Ramos announced Thursday that his municipal team is already working on the last logistical details to receive the Three Kings of Juana Díaz as soon as they return from Rome, where they met with Pope Francis.

“We have on the agenda to receive a large number of families from Guaniqueña and other neighboring towns on Monday, January 2, 2023 in our Manuel Jiménez Mesa public square, starting at 6:00 in the afternoon,” the mayor said. “It’s definitely going to be a magical sunset for all of our children.”

The celebration of the Three Holy Kings is a unique Puerto Rican tradition in the world, and particularly in Juana Díaz, where they have their museum dedicated to all those who have been part of this anniversary.

“Just yesterday [Wednesday] the Juanadina delegation went to the Vatican, where they were received by Pope Francis,” the mayor said. “There, Comrade Mayor Ramón Hernández delivered a letter to the Holy Father asking for intercession on the situation in Puerto Rico.”

As arranged by the organizers, the delegation accompanying the Kings will return to Puerto Rico on Friday, Dec. 30 after completing a journey that includes the participation of the Juanadino Kings in several events in Spain, where they were slated to commemorate Christmas Day.

After the visit to Guánica, on Jan. 6 the Three Kings will be received in the public square of Juana Díaz.

“We invite everyone to be part of this centennial celebration, where we receive the great pastoral and folkloric richness of the Feast of Kings,” Rodríguez Ramos said. “As Guaniqueños we promote the preservation and continuous development of the Kings tradition in Puerto Rico.”
