Feast Day of the Patron Virgin of the Dominican Republic, known as Our Lady of Altagracia or Our Lady of High Grace. This is a portrait of the Virgin Mary painted on a cloth 13 inches wide and 18 inches long, during the early 1500’s in Spain. Two Spanish brothers brought the portrait to Santo Domingo. Many Hispanic-Americans from the Dominican Republic make a pilgrimage to the site in their home country on the feast day.
