CEBU CITY, Philippines —Bad news to devotees of the Sto. Nio who are eager to attend Masses at the city’s most famous church.
The Basilica Minore del Santo Nino de Cebu in downtown Cebu City has decided to cancel its plan to hold public Masses, which were supposed to start on Sunday.
The decision was reached after Cebu City Mayor Edgar Labella issued an executive order, stating among others, that “religious gatherings shall be limited to not more than 10 persons.”
Quarantine passes could also be used only from Mondays to Saturdays as residents are enjoined to stay home on Sundays as part of the measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
