The Procession of Santo Entierro

As the dusk settles and the streets are veiled in a solemn hush, the Archdiocesan Shrine of San Antonio de Padua devotees of the Municipality of Tuburan awaken to the timeless tradition of the Procession of Santo Entierro. With each echoing footstep and flickering candle flame, we are drawn into a sacred journey of reflection and reverence.

The Procession of Santo Entierro is not merely a religious ritual; it is a profound expression of our communal faith, a testament to the enduring power of love and redemption. As we watch the paso, adorned by the local artisans of the Municipality of Tuburan with symbols of Christ’s passion and suffering, carried with reverence through the streets, we are reminded of the universal human experience of loss and promise of resurrection.

In this moment of reflection, we are invited to contemplate our own journeys of faith and resilience. Like the figures depicted on the paso, we carry our own burdens, our own crosses, yet we are buoyed by the promise of hope and renewal.

As the procession winds its way through the Municipality, let us open our hearts to the transformative power of the sacred tradition. May it inspire us to embrace life’s challenges with courage and grace, knowing that even in our darkest hours, we are never alone.

As we conclude this poignant procession, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the following individuals and organizations whose unwavering support and dedication made this event possible, to LGU-Tuburan Headed by Mayor Aljun Diamante & Vice Mayor Danilo Diamante, together with the SB members and Municipal Administrator Atty. Rodulfo Dacalos, Andam Tuburan, Tuburan Traffic Management Group, Solid Waste Managenent, Tourism Office, BJMP-Tuburan, BFP-Tuburan, PNP-Tuburan and its Multipliers, Air-7 Tuburan, Poblacion Barangay Captains & Tanods, Fenian Drums & Bugle Corps, Tuburan Parish Youth coordinating Council (TPYCC), Camareros, Obra Collections and the Archdiocesan Shrine of San Antonio de Padua.

Let us carry forth the spirit of Santo Entierro in our hearts, spreading compassion, love and understanding to all we encounter. May the echoes of this sacred journey resonate within us, guiding on our own paths of faith and devotion.

The procession of the Pasos

As the somber melodies of tradition fill the air and the streets become adorned with fragrant incense, we are reminded that it is once again Holy Week. In the heart of this sacred time, the procession of the Pasos immerge and solemnly carried by devoted hands of the Tuburanons, each step is a testament to faith and devotion.

During the celebration of the Holy Week, the Archdiocesan Shrine of San Antonio de Padua and streets of Poblacion Barangays of the Municipality of Tuburan come alive with a solemn procession of “Pasos”, elaborate floats carrying depictions of the Passion of Christ. Each Paso is a masterpiece of craftsmanship, meticulously created by skilled local artisans, embodying centuries of tradition and devotion.

As we walk alongside these sacred processions, we are invited to reflect on our own journey of faith. We contemplate the meaning of sacrifice and the power of redemption, finding solace in the shared experience of this holy season.

In the midst of the hustle and bustle of modern life, Holy Week offers us a moment of stillness, a chance to pause and reflect on the ultimate sacrifice made for us all. Let us embrace this sacred time with open hearts and minds, allowing the Pasos to lead us on a journey of spiritual renewal and enlightenment.

In this time of deep reflection and profound connection, we would like to thank the unwavering support of the LGU-Tuburan Headed by Mayor Aljun Diamante & Vice Mayor Danilo Diamante, together with the SB members and Municipal Administrator Atty. Rodulfo Dacalos, Andam Tuburan, Tuburan Traffic Management Group, Solid Waste Managenent, Tourism Office, BJMP-Tuburan, BFP-Tuburan, PNP-Tuburan and its Multipliers, Air-7 Tuburan, Poblacion Barangay Captains & Tanods, Fenian Drums & Bugle Corps, Tuburan Parish Youth coordinating Council (TPYCC), Camareros, Obra Collections and the Archdiocesan Shrine of San Antonio de Padua.
