Friars departing from Barbana, but skip the farewell party
DEGREE & nbsp; No farewell party for the friars of Barbana. Instead of leaving the island all together on October 21st, as originally planned, someone has already left, transferred to other destinations. Thus the feast that the Bearers of the Madonna had conceived, carried out in harmony with the Municipality and other local associations, was scheduled for next Sunday in Barbana. It would have been a special moment, of official thanks and perhaps with the delivery of a gift at the end of the mid-morning mass celebration and the procession along the banks of the island with the Virgin of Barbana, which would have been transported once again by the Bearers Grado. But nothing is done.
