Plans for Calungsod
nat’l mass on track
BY NIDA BUENAFE
The venue for the national thanksgiving mass on the canonization of San Pedro Calungsod on Nov. 30 in Cebu City is almost complete, Fr. Raul Gallego, chair of venue preparation, said yesterday.
Gallego said that, although the designated parking area is not yet finished, car passes were already distributed to those who applied for accreditation through the parishes. The parking area, that is across the street of the venue, can accommodate 10,000 cars.
He said work on the template, or the structure where the mass will be held, had to stop Monday night because of heavy rain. But work resumed Tuesday morning. He said they are praying it won’t rain in the remaining days of preparation so they can be ready for the dry run on Saturday.
