Thousands of devotees joined Saturday’s solemn procession of the Sto. NiÃ±o. The procession is the religious aspect of the week-long celebration of the feast of the Sr. Sto. NiÃ±o, considered for a long time as Cebu’s patron saint.
The procession started at the Basilica del Sto. NiÃ±o at 2 p.m. It passed by the streets of Plaridel, Magallanes, Borromeo, Leon Kilat, P. del Rosario, Junquera, Colon, Mabini, P. Burgos, and back to the basilica for a solemn mass, which was officiated by Cebu Archbishop Cardinal Ricardo Vidal.
Cebu City Mayor Tomas OsmeÃ±a led the city delegation that joined the procession. Religious communities and groups were also represented. There were also local and foreign tourists.
