Manila Cathedral reopens Wednesday


    MONTHS after closing its doors to the public due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, the historic Manila Cathedral is set to reopen tomorrow but on a limited capacity.

    The cathedral, in an announcement, said the celebration of Holy Masses will be open to a maximum of 80 people, on a “first come, first served” basis.

    The schedule of masses are 7:30 a.m. and 12:10 p.m. Mondays to Fridays, 7:30 a.m. on Saturdays; and 8 a.m., 10 a.m., and 6 p.m. on Sundays.

    On Sundays, mass-goers can stay at Plaza Roma in front of the church, “where communion will also be distributed,” it said.

    The cathedral also said “all Masses will still be livestreamed online, through our Facebook page and YouTube channel.”

    The Cathedral will also be open for private prayers daily from 8 to 11:30 a.m. and from 1 to 5 p.m.
