The Black Nazarene Prayer Group of Houston was formed on the later part of 1990 with the initiative of bringing the replica image of the said statue from the Philippines by Nilda Alalay, Leni Miranda, Natividad Ropeta and couple Raul and Evelyn Capalad.

The first host and Hermana Mayor was Sis. Cindy Tengco and the image stayed for four years at her residence before finally traveling to the different members home as the Fiesta Celebration started and members grew in numbers.

Today is the 16th year anniversary of the prayer group and the 403rd years since the arrival of the Statue in the Philippines.

For the history of the said event in the Philippines please log to our earlier blogging.
