This brotherhood is in charge of the Procession of 'Jesús Flagelado' on Maundy Thursday

Year of Foundation
Founded in 1953

History
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. From 1978 to 2014 Manuel Besada Varela has been the President and during these years the brotherhood helped to revive several brotherhoods and processions. This brotherhood has been responsible for the first Easter Viacrucis around the streets of the city.
Nowadays the brotherhood has 350 members that participate in the evening of Holy Thursday.
