Semana Santa 2018

Various communication groups along with our police force are strategically assigned in different locations in the city as more people are expected to gather during this year’s Holy Week.

Our City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO) including our local DRRM council members are available 24/7 to respond to any emergencies.

It is expected to swell up to several thousands on Friday as people gathers for the Good Friday Procession, which has been a yearly tradition of procession of beautifully adorned carros and carrozas depicting the passion and death of Jesus Christ.

On Saturday morning where the long tradition of ‘Estacion Publico’ is held along major streets of the city, more people are also expected to attend.

“Thank you to all the reliable men and women who are keeping Catbalogan City safe and secured”, City Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan shares.

‘Semana Santa’ or Holy Week is one of the religious traditions in Catbalogan that has been practiced since the Spanish times and has been carried to the present with the same piety and reverence.

Catbalogan City and the Church of St. Bartholomew the Apostle has celebrated in 2016 its 400th year anniversary as the cabecera or capital of the whole island of Samar and the residencia and mission center of the Jesuit missionary since 1616.

Good Friday 2018

Good Friday procession has long been practiced in Catbalogan as part of the ‘Semana Santa’ or Holy Week traditions, which was influenced by the Spanish colonizers some four hundred years ago.

Carros or carriages with life-size images are intricately designed to depict the passion and death of Jesus Christ, which some dates back nearly centuries ago as maintained by prominent families and cofradias or associations under the parish.

This naturally describes the faithful reverence of Catbaloganons to its faith that has greatly influenced its community and its identity. That despite trials and challenges, Catbaloganons have this enduring faith to God as a sign of gratefulness and humility.

Maundy Thursday 2018

Maundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter, believed to be the day when Jesus celebrated his final Passover with His disciples. Most notably, that Passover meal was when Jesus washed the feet of His disciples in an extraordinary display of humility. He then commanded them to do the same for each other.

Christ’s “mandate” is commemorated on Maundy Thursday — “maundy” being a shortened form of mandatum (Latin), which means “command.” It was on the Thursday of Christ’s final week before being crucified and resurrected that He said these words to his disciples:

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another” (John 13:34).
