Philippines: Celebrating Lorenzo Ruiz

Filipino Catholics flocked to churches to attend Holy Mass and joined fluvial parades and street processions as they marked the feast day of the country’s first Catholic martyr and saint, Lorenzo Ruiz.

In Samar province of the Visayas region, fishermen joined by priests placed a statue of the saint on their boats for a fluvial parade.
