Despite empty churches, Catholic priests hold Good Friday services as Metro Manila is under lockdown for the second Holy Week in a row
Filipinos in Metro Manila observed Good Friday on April 2 for the second time under COVID-19 lockdown, as coronavirus cases surge in the nation’s capital.
Despite empty churches, Catholic priests in Metro Manila held religious services, called the Celebration of the Lord’s Passion, at 3 pm on Good Friday – the hour when Christ died.
A few Catholics opted to pray outside church buildings such as the iconic Quiapo Church, however, even as it was relatively quieter than previous Holy Week observances.
