IN PHOTOS: 8 Local Holy Week Traditions We’ll Miss This Year

In the Philippines, Holy Week is a time for reflection and taking part in religious traditions that have been passed on for generations. This year, however, will be a little different, as the country is in a state of Enhanced Community Quarantine. Let’s relive the local Holy Week traditions that commemorate the life and passion of Christ

Holy Week is the most anticipated solemn Christian tradition, but because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we will have to forgo this time-honored religious observance. With the varying degrees of community quarantine being implemented across the country, the rituals will be through remote online broadcasts from the nearest parish church. 

Check out the gallery below for some of the top rituals and traditions that will be missed, but we look forward to taking part in next year:
