The “Pista Ng Sto. Nino” in San Beda, which coincides with its College Fair, Frolics, is held every last weekend of January. For alumni’s, attending the procession of the “Sto. Nino” is not only a venue to express their faith, but also a good upportunity to attend homecoming’s and to meet batchmate’s whom they have not seen or communicated to for several years.
Today, Sunday, I attended the morning mass at the Our Lady of Monserrat Chapel (better known as San Beda Chapel), before the “Sto. Nino” (the Patron of the school) is brought down from the alter for the procession in the afternoon. (Note: Please click ‘small’ images to enlarge in various sizes.)
I have taken some images of the morning mass as well as the procession in the afternoon, which I am sharing here with you. For fellow Bedans who were not able to attend, you may recognize familiar faces, and for others ( who are equally important to me 🙂 ), I am sharing here a tradition which San Beda have alumni’s keep coming back at least once a year!
Here are images in the Morning Mass at San Beda Chapel:
