Our Lady of Light Parish is sporting a new look. The altar and retablo were recently renovated in time for the Canonical Coronation of Our Lady of Light, the patroness of Cainta and the solemn declaration of the Parish Church as Diocesan Shrine come December 01, 2018.

Even the tiles at the main entrance going to the altar were changed. I love its new look.

December 01 is our town fiesta.  And the town is awashed with vendors selling different merchandise from sweets to shoes, dresses  and what have you.

Just when I thought of watching television after a long time, there goes our non-existent channels. I wonder what happened to our cable connection. Only about five or six local channels are there. I used to watch Asian Food Channel when I am free but now the message says, you have to subscribe first before watching. What happened to CNN, Fox TV and BBC? They don’t appear.

Attended the early morning mass.  The retablo is presently being renovated in time for the Canonical  Coronation of Our Lady of  Light come December 1. The  center aisle was replaced with new tiles too. So nice to see these major renovations to our Parish.  Our Lady of Light is the patron saint of the town.  Four years ago, under the leadership of our present mayor  Nieto,  the SumBingTik Festival was first celebrated.  It is an annual cultural festival held on December 1. The term “sumbingtik” is  a portmanteau of bibingka, suman  and latik,  the town’s native delicacies.

Proud of our Mayor and proud to live in this place. Lately, it has received these awards.
