“Ang biggest concern nato diha, ang daghan nga tawo, unsa ang possible nga makit-an nato nga dapat icorrect pa, somehow daghan motor,  dapat walay makasabay, definitely atoa na nang nahimuan og contingency plan on what to do,” said Getigan.

A lot of students, she said, have also volunteered to help, and they will be positioned in front of the National Shrine of St. Joseph, to restrict people from gate crushing the Traslacion.

Railings will also be placed by the Traffic Enforcement Agency of Mandaue around the church.

From the Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño in Cebu City, the Traslacion will pass through several streets in Mandaue.
