WATCH: Opening Mass of the 456th Fiesta Señor in Cebu

The opening Mass of the annual Fiesta Señor will will kick off the annual Cebu City tradition on Friday, January 8. 

The Mass will start at 5:30 am with the enthronement of the image of Santo Niño, while the opening salvo Mass begins at 6 am.

The Fiesta Señor is the 9-day celebration of the Holy Child Jesus which precedes the annual Sinulog Festival, which takes place every third Sunday of January. 

Due to the pandemic, this year’s fiesta celebration – which normally brings in millions of tourists from all over the world – will be limited to 1,000 attendees at the basilica to ensure physical distancing.

The church, however, encourages devotees to attend Masses virtually from the safety of their homes.

Rappler will air the Mass LIVE beginning at 5:30 am. Bookmark this page to watch the stream and follow our social media channels. – Rappler.com
