St. Peter’s Day Celebrations in Carenage
For Christians, Saint Peter is generally regarded as an important figure in Christianity, and Roman Catholicism specifically. As such, many Christians throughout the world annually celebrate his birthday on 29th June with traditional religious services and festive activities in commemoration of his life’s work. This festival is regarded as an historical occasion and is particularly centered on the sea, fish and fishermen because St. Peter, who was one of Jesus’ twelve Apostles according to the biblical story, was also a fisherman.
