Feast of St Elena

The Memorial Day of Saints Constantine and Helena on June 3 is the patronal feast of the temple in the village of Little Baguio (Arakan, Mindanao Island), which is depicted above on the main page of this site. Little is English for “small”, unlike the “big” city of Baguio, which is located 200 km north of Manila, also high in the mountains and is considered the summer capital of the Philippines. It is not so hot there in summer, so the summer residence of the President of the Republic of the Philippines is located there.
