Manila Archbishop Jose Cardinal Advincula has decided to take the celebration of the feast of the Black Nazarene online.

The Archbishop said in a statement that from Jan. 7 to 9 the masses at the Quiapo Church in celebration of the Black Nazarene feast will be held online.

With the rising number of COVID-19 virus cases in the country, the prelate explained this move is made “upang maiwasan ang pagtitipon ng maramihan.”

“Nauunawan namin ang hangarin ng marami na makapunta sa Quiapo sa araw ng kapistahan ng Mahal na Senor,” he stated.

“Humihingi kami ng paumanhin at pang-unawa na dahil sa pandemya hindi natin magagawa ang mga tradisyonal na gawain kapag kapistahan ng Poong Hesus Nazareno,” he pointed out.

Despite being held online, Advincula urged the faithful to join in the celebration of the masses.
