The Simbang Gabi, a Novena of Masses that was first introduced in Mexico, was known as Misa de Aguinaldo. The Spanish missionaries brought the practice to the Philippines in the 17th century as a way to deepen the faith of the people. The Masses were celebrated as early as 4 a.m. to allow farmers to participate in the liturgy before they went to the fields. Simbang Gabi is a long-held Catholic tradition among many Filipinos not only in our country but anywhere in the world where Filipinos find home. The Diocesan Council of Filipino Catholics is pleased to announce the schedule for the 9 Days Novena of masses at the following churches:
