Celebrating Santo Niño de Cebú 

Staff reporter

Dublin’s Filipino community continues to celebrate devotion to Santo Niño de Cebú this week in St Joseph’s Church on Berkeley Road in Dublin. The devotion revolves around an image of the Christ Child widely venerated as miraculous by Filipino Catholics. The image itself is the oldest Christian artifact in the Philippines, originally a gift from explorer Ferdinand Magellan to Rajah Humabon and his chief consort on account of their Christian Baptism in 1521.

The novena culminates in the feastday this coming Sunday (January 16) with the rosary and a procession from 13.30 followed by Mass at 14.00.
