XIII Anniversary of the Dedication of the Holy Cathedral Church of Cubao A.D. 2016

On 14 August 2016, Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost and Vigil of the Assumption, Mass was celebrated for the 13th Anniversary of the Dedication of the Cathedral of the Diocese of Cubao in the Parish of the Most Holy Redeemer. Assisting were members of the Societas Ecclesia Dei Sancti Ioseph – Una Voce Philippines.


In the Extraordinary Form, the anniversary of the dedication of the cathedral church of a diocese or ecclesiastic territory headed by a local ordinary is ranked as a feast of the I class, besides being a feast of the Lord, in the proper calendar of the diocese (RG 43, b). It therefore takes precedence over Sundays of the II class. Hence, the 13th Anniversary of the Dedication of the Cathedral Church of the Diocese of Cubao (I class) is preferred over the Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost (II class). In other words, the feast outranks the Sunday. On the anniversary of dedication, all twelve candles affixed to the roundels or consecration crosses on the walls of the cathedral are traditionally lit. From today’s homily, we learn that celebrating the anniversary of the dedication of a cathedral church is a powerful manifestation of our fidelity and communion with the local ordinary, who is the link between the local church and the Universal Church.

During the chanting of the Gospel; at the Consecration; before the distribution of Holy Communion.

Ut in omnibus laudetur Dominus.
