The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines on Tuesday issued the “Act of Consecration to St. Joseph” with six translation of local languages.

The release of the Tagalog, Cebuano, Bikolano, Hiligaynon, Ilokano, and Waray translations was made four days ahead of the National Consecration to St. Joseph on May 1.

The national consecration will be led by Archbishop Romulo Valles, CBCP President, at the San Pedro Cathedral in Davao City at 9:54 a.m. after the Holy Rosary.

The CBCP invited the faithful to join the activity which will be live-streamed via the Facebook page of the archdiocese’s DxGN899-Spirit FM station.

“As an expression of solidarity, it is kindly requested that this be broadcasted in your churches so that all the bishops and priests together with the faithful can join in the consecration,” said Msgr. Bernardo Pantin, CBCP Secretary General.

The Mass for the Feast of St. Joseph will then follow at 10:00 a.m. in the different cathedrals and parish churches led by the National Shrine of St. Joseph in Mandaue City.

“After the post-Communion prayer, a diocesan or parish consecration could also be made especially for those that could not follow the national consecration,” he said.
