Year of Foundation
Founded in 1953
Its origin goes back to the Marian Congregation of San Luis de Gonzaga in the church of San Agustín, run by father Villamil; the association was made up of young university students at that time.
Its first president was José Besada Varela, who gathered 26 founding members that participated in the 1953 procession.
The brotherhood now has 350 members that participate in the evening of Holy Thursday.
