Official Sinulog 2022 Novena Mass Schedule and Where to watch

This year started to be very challenging among many Cebuanos due to the devastating wrath of Typhoon Odette last December 16 and now the rising cases of Omicron variant.

Despite these life challenges, our faith just grows stronger. That’s why there’s still no stopping Cebu from honoring its patron, Señor Sto. Niño or the Holy Child Jesus. Most events for this year will still be done virtually while the devotees are also encouraged to attend the Sinulog novena masses online.

More than the festive celebration in Cebu — from the most colorful parades to the grandest programs and competitions here and there, at the end of the day, Sinulog is a solemn and religious event celebrating the adoration of the city’s patron, Señor Sto. Niño or the Holy Child Jesus.

Why do we celebrate Sinulog?

The Sinulog Festival is a celebration in honor of Santo Niño (Child Jesus). The festival is done by a dance ritual, in which it tells the story of the Filipino people The word “Sinulog” means a graceful dance– a rhythmic and beautiful forward and backward motion that represents the “sulog” (or current).

The Sinulog Festival has been going around for almost four centuries now. Its rich history dates back to old and truly reflects the humble beginnings of Cebu and the birth and growth of Christianity in Cebu and the Philippines.
