Sto. Nino goes to San Nicolas


After the Eucharistic celebration of 8:00 am at the Sto. Nino Pilgrim Center, the image of the Sto. Nino was transferred to San Nicolas de Tolentino Parish to mark the traditional “traslacion” annually done to commemorate another significant historical and cultural aspect of Sto. Nino devotion. 

At around 9:00 am, the image was sent-off with prayers by the Rector of the Basilica, Fr. Jonas Mejares, OSA and then it was borne with the singing of Gozos amidst people raising their hands and the shouts of “pit Senyor”.

As the image arrived at San Nicolas, it was welcomed by the parishioners in festive mood. A Eucharistic celebration was presided by Msgr. Adelito Abella upon the arrival of the image as a welcome from the people of San Nicolas. The image will stay until April 26, 2015 in the morning with a Mass to be celebrated by Fr. Andrew Batayola, OSA, former Basilica Rector and 450Kaplag Chairman on Committee on Evangelization, at around 9:00 am. Then, it will be sent off for the last traslacion series to Saint Joseph Shrine, Mandaue City. (OSACebuAdmin)
