Marinduque - Good Friday Procession


Good Friday procession is one of the most attended processions in all church activities during the holy week. In keeping with the centuries-old Good Friday tradition, it is solemnly observed by the Catholics to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ.

Life-size images are paraded around the streets of Boac in richly decorated and lighted carrozas.





We followed the Santo Sepulcro (dead Christ) while praying the rosary at the procession. It lasted for about 2 hours before all the images were brought back to the Cathedral.






This is the last part of my Moriones Festival series. Next posts will be on the other things that happened and the activities we did in the island. A side trip to Lucena City is an added treat! Watch out for it!



Happened last April 21-23, 2011, here's a series of posts on this one of a kind Moriones Festival experience in Boac Marinduque, Philippines. Thanks to Ajel and Julius for letting me use some of their photos in this series.
