SANTACRUZAN & FLORES DE MAYO In the Filipino way of brightening solemn events into joyous ones, two feasts were merged to form what is now known as the “Queen of Filipino Feasts”, THE SANTACRUZAN & FLORES DE MAYO. The event generally held on the 9th night of the novena is observed to honor the Holy Cross. Annually, during the feast day, the novena procession would be commemorated after the mass and will be participated by members of the community who will partake roles as Reynas, Sagalas (muses), Flower Girls, Angels, their Escorts and a display of biblical figures, characters of beauty, purity and fancy, and symbols of attributes to the Virgin Mary. Historically, the SANTACRUZAN is a religious commemoration of the finding of the True Cross by Queen Helen (or Reyna Elena, in Tagalog or Filipino translation), mother of the Roman Emperor Constantine who, in the Edict of Milan in 313, legalized Christianity. This paved the way for its spread throughout the world. It also initiated the celebration of the Spanish springtime tradition of FLORES DE MAYO (literally translated as “Flowers in May”) which is dedicated to the Blessed Mother with offerings of flowers and festive processions. This particular event in Jersey City was initiated by the Catholic Action of Mary (CAM) in 1978 and in the course of time partnered with Pan American Concerned Citizens Action League (PACCAL) to make the festivities bigger and stronger within the community.

“Jersey City rapper Robert Van Liew, better known as DJ DX, records many of his tracks in his producer DJ Madden's humble home studio. His songs, however, are heard well beyond Chilltown's 21 square miles. On Facebook, the 30-year-old's has about 30,000 likes, plus a blue checkmark next to his name, a symbol that verifies the pages of "well-known public figures." On European social media site VK, he's got another 26,000 followers. So what's DJ DX still doing in JC? This is his family's hometown, and where he fell in love with hip-hop. "Everything about hip-hop was good--the way you dressed, the sounds," said DJ DX. "I liked people with a message like the Lost Boys, Biggie Smalls and Tupac." He started as a DJ and eventually began rapping, talking about the trials of his childhood. His tale is not uncommon; his mother "slipped into doing drugs" while his father was in and out of prison, and he's been through his fair share of hardships.”
