The “red hat ceremony” for Cardinal Jose Advincula, the new archbishop of Manila, has been rescheduled for next month.

The event was set to take place tomorrow but has been moved to June 8 due to the availability of the papal nuncio, Archbishop Charles Brown.

Archbishop Brown just arrived Manila last week after a trip to his home city New York.

Fr. Emilio Arbatin, spokesperson of the Capiz archdiocese, said the nuncio is currently undergoing the mandatory government-mandated 14-day quarantine.

He said the ceremony will still take place at the Immaculate Conception Metropolitan Cathedral in Roxas City at 9:00 a.m.

Advincula will be officially installed as the 33rd archbishop of Manila on June 24.

The 69-year-old will formally assume the post during a Mass at the Manila Cathedral.

Also postponed is the canonical coronation of the image of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores de Capas in the Diocese of Tarlac, which will be led by the nuncio.

Originally set on May 31, the coronation and his pastoral visit to the diocese will now be held on June 5.
