MANILA, July 15, 2014—The Nuestra Señora de la Soledad (Our Lady of Solitude) de Camba Parish is scheduled to celebrate its fifth parish anniversary on July 20, Sunday.
Manila Archbishop Luís Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle will preside over a High Mass at 9:00 a.m.
Camba parishioners will be holding a “Soledad Grand Marian Procession” at 4:00 p.m. which will feature replicas of the Soledad icon, a variation of the more famous image in Cavite City.
A young parish, Nuestra Señora de la Soledad de Camba (Our Lady of Solitude) on Camba Street, Binondo, Manila was created under RCAM’s Vicariate of Santo Niño by then Manila Archbishop Gaudencio B. Cardinal Rosales, and is dedicated to the patronage of Nuestra Señora de la Soledad.
It was established on July 16, 2009, the “Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel”.
Its territorial boundaries were taken from Our Lady of Peace of Good Voyage Parish, Tondo, Manila; Santo Niño parish, Tondo, Manila; and the Minor Basilica of San Lorenzo Ruíz, Binondo, Manila.
Fr. Jeremiah A. Adviento, Camba’s current parish priest, succeeded Fr. Benjamin Jugueta, its first parish priest. (Raymond A. Sebastián)
