"There are two Religious icon in the Philippines that are highly celebrated by millions of Filipinos annually as part of their Catholic Faith undertakings and with Papal Blessings.

One, is the Fiesta of the Sto. Nino of Cebu and the other is the the Black Nazarene of Quiapo. Millions of devotees flock both icons and happens both on the first month of the year and not distant week apart.

Both Icons depict the two different stages that the Christ Jesus was under the state of helplessness. The Infant Jesus being dependent on His mother's care and the other on the last days of His crucifixion and death to the cross."

This is according to Fr. Luis Evardoni's Homily.

It reminds us of the very purpose why Jesus Christ came in to this world, or why he was sent to us ..... to Redeem and Save us of our sins! All things came to be through Him and without Him nothing came to be - John 1:3

Let us be grateful to our Lord for all that He has given us, and share that blessings unto others. This year will be our 18th anniversary as a Prayer Group, let us join hands in giving more homes to our unfortunate brothers in the Philipines - let us give support the Gawad Kalinga project as we started a year ago.

We would like to personally thank ALL the members of the Black Nazarene Prayer Group for all the support and encouragement this past years when the Black Nazarene was in our home. Being the youngest of the group, we found inspiration and drew strength through each and everyone.

Special thanks to Sis. Amy Llacar for printing the flyers and the event program as well as providing the monthly birthday cakes for our member celebrants; Sis. Gloria Canlas for the beautiful musical accompaniment during our monthly novenas; previous Hermanos/Hermanas Mayor for all the support, prayers and guidance (Oscar & Amy Rizarri, Ver & Cody Viado, Sonny & Suzzette Acebedo, Gene & Donna Duremdes); Tessie Chiopongian and Vicki Boado for providing the new out fit for the statue of Jesus the Black Nazarene.

Special thanks also to our parents, Boy and Ching Bagulbagul and Danny and Elsie Carino for helping us during the Fiesta preparation and the monthly novenas.
