Devotion to the image of the Holy Child or Santo Niño can be seen almost everywhere among Cebuano Catholics, from the altars in every home to the Santo Niño prayer cards kept in wallets. The Santo Niño is said to help and protect us in times of great need.
In celebration of the feast of the Santo Niño, the Casa Gorordo Museum has invited Fr. Ric Anthony Reyes, OSA, the spokesperson of the Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño de Cebu, as resource speaker of a CGM Talk on January 18, 2021, 1 P.M. about elevating the preparation and presentation of the well-loved Holy Child of Cebu.
The talk will be streamed 1PM @ www.facebook.com/casagorordomuseum.
The talk, which will be streamed live on Casa Gorordo Museum’s Facebook page, aims to look into the religious and cultural aspects of Cebuanos’ devotion to the Santo Niño and trace how it has changed through the years.
The CGM Talks is one of the many programs of the Culture and Heritage Unit of the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. that promotes Cebuano culture and heritage. The talk will be streamed 1PM @ www.facebook.com/casagorordomuseum.
