Catbalogan unveils Christmas Belen made by local sculptor

Commissioned by the City Government through local sculptor, Mr. Joel Alba Pragas, an eleven-piece nativity scene is currently displayed at the city stage and was officially unveiled last December 17, 2018 by no less than City Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan, signalling the start of the “Kapaskohan ha Katbalogan” activity in Catbalogan City.

Witnessed by various partners and stakeholders, series of activities are scheduled every night to promote our local culture while celebrating the most joyous season of the year.

“An paghatag hin waray sukol nga paghigugma, waray kabalyo nga pagbulig ngan pag-simpatiya ngan sakripisyo para han kada tagsa, labi na gud adto nga atun mga kabugtuan nga kulang ha kinabuhi, amo an tinuod nga karuyag signgon han pag selebrar han Pasko,” Mayor Step shares.

The Christmas Belen displayed at the city stage is meant to remind Catbaloganons of the real meaning of Christmas and that is Christ – His birth and our salvation.
