"Salubong" in Dasmariñas City - Cavite

The "Salubong"

As early as 3:30 AM in the morning, I thought my wife  woke me up to attend the 4AM mass. I have no idea that it was about the "Salubong" because I thought  it's just a regular early morning mass. It's my first time to attend the "Salubong" celebration in my entire religious life. I've noticed that when we've reached the church the image of the Blessed Mary was about to be paraded to the street of our parish area. I have no idea about the route of the parade and what will be happening at the end. 

The procession start at our Mary of Perpetual Help Parish Church in "Dasmariñas Bagung Bayan -1" where the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary started of the parading ceremony. At first there were only few to a hundred devotees join the procession. 

It was still dark when we reach the next nearest barangay.

After a kilometer walk from Brgy. San Isidro Labrador, we have reach Brgy. Sto. Niño 2.

Almost a thousand of devotees join the procession.

We finally arrive at Brgy. Sto. Cristo where the venue where the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary & the Risen Jesus Christ meet.
The crowd were so thick I was not able to get close to the scene.

The sun was already showing up, when the two images return back to the parish church, and the Easter Mass commenced.

The procession and the ceremony was really amazing, I was really fortunate I was able to share this to you. My wife and I went home at around 7:30AM after the Easter Mass and we both wish we will be able to attend next year celebration. That's it, I hope you've enjoyed your Easter the same way that I have. Happy Easter to All!
