Sinulog Celebration Novena Mass at Basilica del Sto. Niño

By Monday, January 14, 2013 , , No comments
 The novena masses at the Basilica del Sto. Niño is one of the highlight in celebrating the Sinulog Festival every year. Flowing crowd is expected every mass. This only tell us how great Sto. Niño is to all the people in Cebu an even to other provinces. Visitors from other provinces are also expected and of great number.

 I happened to get some pictures during the 5th day of the Novena. You can see it below.

Red and yellow is always the combination for the theme for the celebration. And for these year, the church provided a lot of umbrellas for the devotees to protect them form the heat of the during the mass and from the rain also which is always present every novena mass and which is believed to be a blessing from Sñ. Sto. Niño.

Always the highlight of every novena mass is the song of praise for Sñ. Sto. Niño which shows people waving their hands while singing the song. It's really a very nice scenery.

It was announced that more or less 5 million people will be gathered to celebrate during the Sinulog Festival Grand Parade and Mardi Gras.
