Davao dioceses urge devotees to join local ‘traslacion’

Devotees of the Black Nazarene in the Archdiocese of Davao and Diocese of Digos have been invited to join the localized ‘traslacion’ 2022 which will start on Friday.

In a Facebook post on Thursday, Jesus Nazareno – Davao asked the faithful to join the religious activities in commemoration of the feast of the Black Nazarene on January 9, 2022.

“We announced the official schedule of activities for the localized Traslacion 2022 here in the Archdiocese of Davao. We are blessed to have the official replica of the Black Nazarene from Quiapo Church permanently enshrined in our chapel, the Our Lady of Peñafrancia (OLP) GKK Chapel, DECA Homes Esperanza Tigatto, Davao City,” it said.

It also reminded the faithful that the traditional foot procession has been canceled in compliance with the health protocols set by the government.

“Instead we have decided to replace it with a mobile Traslacion where cars and motorcycles can join with us in bringing the Nazareno replica to all residents of Mandug and Callawa. We, therefore, ask participants who have motorcycles and vehicles to coordinate with us so that everything would be done orderly,” it added.

The Novena Mass will be held from January 1 to 7 at the chapel at 6 p.m. while the ninth-day novena Mass will be held at the San Alfonso Maria de Liguori Parish, Mandug at 6 p.m.
