The Saint is the Patroness of Santa Cruz and of the Impossible Causes. That is why it has great devotion among the locals and also among many devotees from neighboring towns and beyond.
It has a reputation for fulfilling your wishes in exchange for pilgrimages on the day of the Saint, May 22. From Trujillo a large group departed every year, also from other towns, and they all gathered in the church for a special mass.
The image of Saint Rita was decorated with roses, which were blessed during the mass. At the end, petals were distributed among all the attendees. The procession is followed with great jubilation.
