 Holy Week Penitence  

The Holy Monday of each year, residents who profess the Catholic religion, climb the Acatenango Volcano as a penitence to expiate sins and receive blessings from God. They go up early in the morning without having eaten, fasting and eating only after the Mass that the priest leads, which ends approximately at noon, and then descends to their different communities.
