Given the more relaxed COVID-19 alert level in Metro Manila, the Cultural Center of the Philippines brings back its long-established tradition of the Simbang Gabi with real-time, on-site celebrations.
In partnership with the Our Lady of Sorrows Parish and other hermanas (sponsors) around the complex, the Misa de Gallo will be held from Dec. 16 to 24, 5:00 a.m., at the CCP Main Ramp. The Misa de Aguinaldo (Christmas Eve Mass) will be held on Dec. 24, 8:00 p.m. at the CCP Main Theater, with a pre-mass program. This will be broadcast on CNN Philippines.
With encouraging feedback from last year’s virtual Simbang Gabi, the CCP also renewed its partnership with various parishes from the different regions of the country to celebrate anticipated Simbang Gabi masses.
Meanwhile, CPP also launched its annual Christmas lighting event, dubbed Pasko 2021: The CCP Façade Lights and Sound Show, tonight at 7:00, at the Main Building Façade. The launch streams live on the CCP Facebook Page.
Designed by the Technical Team from the CCP Production Design and Technical Services Division, the annual holiday event features projected images of Christmas symbols and select, well-loved Christmas carols.
