WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
This year marks the first time in the period of pandemic that Roman Catholic churches in the Philippines will open their doors and welcome the faithful in less restrictive celebrations of Simbang Gabi.
With the lowering of COVID-19 health protocols to the minimum, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines has encouraged the Filipino faithful to return to worshiping physically inside churches. The Christmas season, highlighted by the Filipino tradition of Misa de Gallo, is the best time to urge Catholics to rekindle their faith.
