About The Event
Traditionally celebrated for 9 days with a Novena and Mass for each day, at 6:45pm. Organised by the Devotees of the Senyor Santo Niño Group, the celebration in New Zealand begins this year on 11 January, with a liturgical dance and parade of images of the Santo Niño and Novena-Mass at the St. Patrick's Cathedral, Wyndham Square, Auckland CBD.
Sinulog culminates on the actual feast day, 20 January, with a procession at 9:30am, followed by a Mass, lunch, and group dance presentations featuring vibrant displays of ceremony and pageantry, with participants garbed in brightly coloured costumes dancing to the rhythm of drums and native gongs. The dances will portray the historical celebration of Sinulog, as well as the different cultural devotions to the Santo Niño from various parts of the Philippines.
