The Mexico-based La Luz del Mundo (The Light of the World) evangelical megachurch on Friday is celebrating its most solemn ceremony remotely and without the presence of its leader, who is currently jailed in the United States on sex-crime charges.

In a typical year, thousands of faithful would throng to the church's main headquarters in the western city of Guadalajara for that fundamentalist organization's week-long Holy Convocation, which culminates with the religious Holy Supper Service.
