‘Colorful display, effective shade too for churchgoers’

Colorful umbrellas provide a mezmerizing sight and shelter too from the sun to devotees forced to stay outside when hearing mass at historic Quiapo Church which is most of the time, especially on Sundays and Fridays, filled to its seating capacity.

Metro Manila is still under Alert Level 1 until July 15 and mass gatherings are allowed. A 100% capacity for churches is now also allowed still, the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo, more often than not, is overflowing with churchgoers.

Nevertheless, they have those colorful umbrellas always waiting to give them a welcome shelter from the sun.
