San Fernando City, Pampanga

The Archdiocesan Liturgical Commission of Pampanga will host an online Marian concert on Sunday in tribute to Covid-19 frontliners.

Organizers said the 6pm concert aims to recognize the efforts of the country’s frontliners and to pray for their safety through Mary’s intercession.

The May 31 virtual event, which coincides with the end of the Marian month, is in collaboration with the different media ministries in the archdiocese.

Dubbed as “Lalam Na Pu Ning Kayampunan: A Night of Prayer, Music and Reflection”, the initiative will also mark the Memorial of Mary, Mother of the Church, which is celebrated on the Monday following the Pentecost Sunday.

The title is taken from the first words of the oldest known prayer to the Blessed Mother— Sub Tuum Praesidium (Under Your Protection).

The program will be a series of scriptural readings, prayers and meditations on the Seven Joys of Mary to be led by the Archbishop Florentino Lavarias of San Fernando, his predecessor Archbishop Emeritus Paciano Aniceto and other priests.

Songs to the Blessed Virgin will also be rendered by different choir groups of the archdiocese.

The virtual concert may be viewed on the Facebook pages of the Archdiocesan Liturgical Commission, Pampanga and the Archdiocese of San Fernando Radio Station 91.9 Bright FM.
