Devotees flock to St. Peter Parish in QC to venerate Black Nazarene

Devotees gather outside the St. Peter Parish along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City on January 9, 2022, as they wait for their turn to pray and venerate a replica image of the Black Nazarene inside the church.

Sunday, 09 January 2022 marked the Feast of the Black Nazarene and is traditionally held in Quiapo, Manila.

But with the surge of COVID-19 cases powered by both Omicron and Delta Covid variants, health authorities and Quiapo church leaders decided to temporarily cancel this year the holding of the traditional procession or ‘Traslacion’ and on site masses at the Minor Basilica of the Back Nazarene (Quiapo Church).
