The Calapan City has recently kicked off its month-long celebration of feast of their patron saint, Sto. Niño, that will culminate January 1.

The opening salvo of the celebration was held last December 1 led by Calapan City Mayor Arnan Panaligan and Vice Mayor Gil Ramirez through a mass held at the Sto. Niño Cathedral.

“Matapos ang misa ay agad itong sinundan ng parada na kung saan ay inilibot ang Patrong Sto. Niño sa ilang pangunahing barangay sa lungsod na inabanagan ng mga residente, guro at mga mag-aaral. Nagtapos ang parada sa Barangay Tawagan para sa isang maigsing palatuntunan at pagtatangahal na nakaugnay sa pagbibigay pugay sa Patron,” the City said in a statement.

The feast carries the theme “Sambayanang Nagbubukold, Calapeñong Naglilingkod kay Sto. Niñong Kalugod-lugod.”

Also present during the celebration were Sangguniang Panlungsod members Hon. Mylene De Jesus, Hon. Marian Tagupa-Brucal, Hon. Eric Apasan, Hon. Charles Pansoy, Hon. Rafael Panaligan Jr., Hon. Felix Flores and Hon. Hector Africa.
