The ' Romería del Milagro' will finally be held on Sunday November 17 . This was agreed during a meeting recently between Neighbourhood Associations and Neighbourhood Fisherman of Bolnuevo who met with the Priest of the Parish of San Andres Apostle and San Antonio de Padua , Julio Romero , and Representatives of the Archicofradía de La Purísima Concepción. The meeting was also attended by the Mayor of Mazarrón , Ginés Campillo, and the Councillor for Celebration , Isidro Coy .

Although Article 70 of the cited statutes archicofradía dictates" the Sunday after November 17 , or the next if coincides on a Sunday, at 07:30 hours Mass will be celebrated in the Iglesia Santuario in Mazarrón and , upon completion ,  the ' Romería del Milagro ' will commence with the image of La Purisima, who will return to Bolnuevo " and finally it was agreed that the popular pilgrimage will be celebrated on the 17th , not the 24th as planned . This will cause a change in the events , as usual, held in honour of the patron on the ' Dia del Milagro ' ( November 17 ) .

Thus, the popular offering to ' La Purisima ' will be on  Sunday , November 10 . It will take place from 17 pm and depart , as usual, from the hospice ' La Purisima ' in Mazarrón. The offering , like last year, will consist of a supply of food for needy families that participants have deposited at the entrance of that residence and collected by members of ' Caritas Parroquial ' . With each food delivery is also a flower similar to that which will be worn at the feet of the Virgin , and will be accompanied in the procession by various vehicles. The procession crosses the town and generally you will find children and adults dressed in the “huertano” costume .

The Reading of the
‘Nueve declaraciones del Milagro’ will be held at the Santuario de La Purisima on Friday November 15 at 20pm . This year , this staged reading will be given by the IES theatre group of "Domingo Valdivieso " and the chorus of 'Juan Toledo ' . On the other hand , the Holy Mass in renewing the Voto de la Villa Almazarrón a la Patrona , will be held on November 17 , Festividad del Milagro, at 19 pm in the Santuario . At the end of the service the blessing and distribution of ' Virgin Oil ' will take place followed by the procession with the image of the Patron Saint through the streets of Mazarrón , visiting the churches of San Andres and San Antonio de Padua .

The only thing that remains unchanged is the arrival of the Virgin to Mazarron to arrive at the Santuario on Sunday morning November 10 , the Sunday before the ' Dia del Milagro ' , after being received in the garden that bears her name. That day, the image will depart from her hermitage in Bolnuevo at 9.30am to arrive at the garden in Mazarrón about 11am . Finally remember that the local holiday this year, which is usually the November 17, passes through Monday November 18th.
