The transportation aspect of our pilgrims and delegates to and from the various venues is one major consideration of the 51st International Eucharistic Congress. Hence, to have a view and to check on the viability of the TRANSPORT ROUTES of the actual event itself, a DRY RUN is scheduled on November 23, 2015 (Monday).
Prior to the event though, a PRESS CON is set on NOVEMBER 17, 2015 (Tuesday) at 9:30 AM at the Filipiniana Hall, Archbishop’s Residence, Jakosalem St., Cebu City. This is to make sure that all the faithful and the general public be informed and be updated regarding its details as there may also be public roads that would be closed to give way to the DRY RUN. Expected resource persons are Bishop Dennis Villarojo, D.D, IEC 2016 Secretary-General, Rev. Fr. Wendell Balbuena, Committee on Transportation Chairman and the respective Traffic Management Office Heads of the Cities, Cebu, Mandaue and Lapulapu.
Moreover, other updates on the preparations especially the forthcoming CHRIST THE KING celebration may also be provided during the PRESS CON.
Henceforth, this notice serves as your formal invitation. Thank you.
