HOLY WEEK - Makinabang, Baliuag, Bulacan

Merciful God, release us from the time of trial and oppression, that we may witness to the eternal hope of grief becoming joy and life rising from death.
Holy week in Baliuag has always been festive, venerated and most of all, awaited.
For how many years, the town proper of Baliuag Bulacan always have about 100 or more carrozas or karo every Holy Week.

It is from this inspiration that our parish, Sto. Rosario de Makinabang, of Baliuag, Bulacan -  6 years ago, started to have our own Holy Week procession. Every Holy Wednesday and Good Friday, the carrozas walk the stretch of our main road. we started with merely 6 karos, but now, we are proud to have about 35 carrozas now. This was made possible by several devotees and volunteers. All the karos in our procession are owned by families that are active in the parish. As family volunteers that wanted to join, it is not a question of how big or small, how simple or extravagant, or who is who, that joins the procession. thus, the solemness and importance of the season is vastly observed. We commemorate the passion of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ through our own way, not to merely perform idolatry, but to pay respect to the traditions of our religion. 

here are the 2015 Holy Week Procession in Makinabang.
