The SOLEMN PROCESSION during the IEC 2016 is one major religious activity outside the IEC Pavilion. It is expected to gather a huge number of faithful since it is open to all the faithful whether registered delegates or not. The highlight of this religious activity is a huge and especially designed MONSTRANCE that would contain the Blessed Sacrament during the Procession.
In preparation for the abovementioned actual event, this MONSTRANCE would be solemnly blessed during the Archdiocesan Solemn Opening of the Holy Door at the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral on December 13, 2015, Sunday, at 8:00 AM.
Before the said blessing however, a formal presentation of the MONSTRANCE to the MEDIA is set on December 10, 2015, Thursday at 3:00 PM at the Filipiniana Hall, Archbishop’s Residence, Jakosalem St., Cebu City. The one who is expected to present and to provide the important details is Msgr. Marnell Mejia, the Chairman of the IEC 2016 Committee on Procession. Other updates of the IEC 2016 Solemn Procession may also be provided and clarified.
Hence, this notice serves as your formal invitation. Thank you.
