December 25 – Christmas in the new calendar is the official and main holiday in the Philippines. In a country where 80% of the population are Roman Catholics, this day is preceded by long holidays so that believers have the opportunity to visit churches where special fore-festal services are held for 9 days. In our old calendar, on this day, we celebrate the memory of the great wonderworker St. Spiridon of Trimifunt.
On this day, the diocesan Department for Charity and Social Ministry held an action “Christmas Café” in Tagaytay: everyone who came to the parish of Christ the Savior on this holiday received a festive gift. Dozens of children and poor Tagaytay residents received a piece of festive mood and love from the volunteers of the FMI foundation.
