ARCHBISHOP JOHN DU led the pontifical concelebrated mass in honor of Tacloban patron Sr. Sto. Niño on its feast day last June 30.

About 200 priests from various parishes in Eastern Visayas also joined the religious celebration.

Thousands of devotees joined the fluvial parade of Sr. Sto. Niño along the Cancabato Bay and the land procession at the city’s main thoroughfare.

Also attending the event were City Mayor Alfred Romualdez, his wife Councilor Cristina Romualdez, and Leyte First District Ferdinand Martin Romualdez, along with other city officials.
