Traditionally observed every third Sunday of January in the Philippines, the feast of the Santo Niño (Holy Child Jesus) is special for the Filipinos. The devotion is also extended to Macau. It is for this reason that the Sunday masses after Epiphany are devoted to Santo Niño.
The Filipino community in Macau prayed and danced once again in praise of Señor Santo Niño. The Sinulog celebrations and the devotion to the Holy Child of Cebu brought together more than five hundred devotees at Saint Augustine’s Church on January 15. Father Felipe Bacalso, SJ, who arrived in Macau in later October, presided over the ceremonies.
