SHARE

The Simbang Gabi, a novena of Masses, first introduced in Mexico, was known as Misa de Gallo. The Spanish missionaries introduced this practice to deepen the faith of the people of the Philippines. 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 Catholic tradition among many Filipinos not only in our country but anywhere in the world that Filipinos call home.

The Diocesan Council of Filipino Catholics will welcome Coadjutor Bishop Oscar Cantú on December 11, 7 p.m. at Saint John the Baptist Church. That begins 9 days Novena of Masses at the following churches:
