It’s a passion play with roots that go beyond the borders of Texas, far beyond even Mexico. It’s called Los Pastores.
“It actually originated from the Franciscan Friars from Spain.”
That's the play's Assistant Director, Deborah Covarrubias-Barcenez.
“They brought it to the New World, to Mexico, to teach the indigenous people the nativity story. And from Mexico is was brought to Texas, to here in San Antonio, in 1910 to our parish at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church.”
