Morning, afternoon, and evening Masses will be offered on the feast of the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, on Wednesday, Dec. 8.

Officials of the Antipolo Cathedral, also known as the National Shrine of the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage, said there will be Masses at 6 a.m., 8 a.m., 10 a.m., 12 noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Wednesday.

On December 7, Tuesday, the eve of feast of the Immaculate Conception, a concert serenade entitled, “Harana Para Sa Mahal na Ina” is scheduled at 8 p.m. which can be viewed live via the Facebook and Youtube pages of the Birhen ng Antipolo-Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage.

December 8, by tradition, is observed as the city’s feast day. It used to be festive specially for residents in the city proper or the so-called upper Antipolo City prior to the pandemic.

The city government said that unlike in the past years when parades of brass bands and drum and lyre bands and other activities that attract huge crowds take place on or before December 8, a simple celebration will be held this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
