3. Activity

Santacruzan is a religious-historical pageant held in the Philippines during the Month of


May. It depicts the finding of the Holy Cross of Christ by Queen Helena, the mother of the powerful
Emperor, Constantine the Great who ended the persecution of Christians.

The festivity commemorates the search of the Holy Cross by Empress Helena and her
son, the newly converted emperor. After finding the Holy Cross in Jerusalem, it was authenticated
by a miracle of healing attributed to it and was brought back to Rome. The search was marked
with a joyful celebration of thanksgiving.

Flores de Mayo is a religious festival in honor of Mary, the Mother of God. The Feast is
marked with the offering of flowers by sagalas or shepherd girls. The “Mayflower” offering is
marked with the offering may refer to the whole flower festival celebrated in the Month of May in
