Peace in the Lord!
In reference to the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) and the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments’ Guidelines on the Celebration of Holy Week and Easter Triduum, as well as the common discernment of the Bishop of Parañaque, the Presbyteral Council, and the Vicars Forane, the Diocesan Commission on Liturgy and Popular Religiosity has formulated the attached Pastoral and Liturgical Guidelines for our celebration of Holy Week and Easter Triduum in the Diocese for this year. This also serves as our cooperation and compliance with the government’s implementation of the Enhance Community Quarantine to contain the spread of COVID-19 in our county.
Attached also is the suggested Family Prayers for Holy Week.
