‘Anti-pork’ signature drive
to highlight dawn masses

The traditional nine-day novena masses, or simbang gabi, that started this dawn, were to be highlighted by massive signature campaigns at the parishes of the Diocese of Dumaguete to show support for the People’s Initiative to scrap the pork barrel system.

Bishop Julito Cortes was scheduled to celebrate the first Aguinaldo Mass, at 4 a.m. today, at the St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral.

While a symbolic signing of the petition to gather as many signatures of registered voters in Negros Oriental for the People’s Initiative had been held earlier at the diocese level, the first of the nine days votive masses will see its simultaneous launching in all the parishes of the Dumaguete Diocese.moremoremore
