Archdiocese of Manila Archbishop Jose Cardinal Advincula will preside over a concelebrated mass in honor of frontliners at 9 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 15, at the San Felipe Neri Parish in Mandaluyong City.
Dubbed “Isang Misyon, Isang Panginoon: Parangal at Dasal Alay sa Ating Frontliners,” parish priest Fr. Hans Magdurulang will co-celebrate the mass.
The Church will offer the mass for frontliners in honor of healthcare workers who are now considered as our modern-day heroes amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “The mass is in recognition of our medical frontliners who are risking their lives and that of their loved ones as they continue to serve in the fight against COVID-19,” organizers said.
Cardinal Advincula on National Heroes Day paid tribute to the country’s healthcare workers as he recognized their heroic sacrifices amid the pandemic. “As we go through this pandemic, we pay tribute to our medical workers. They are our true heroes in the fight against COVID-19. The whole nation is grateful to all our frontliners,” His Eminence said over Radio Veritas.
The holy mass will be streamed live over Radio Veritas and may be viewed via Veritas Facebook and Youtube channel, Archdiocese of Manila – Office of Communication, and TV Maria.
