On November 8, exactly a year after the onslaught of super typhoon Yolanda, a special mass intention tomorrow at 6:30 am and 5:00 pm will be held in the island of Boracay led by Holy Rosary Parish.

According to Boracay Team Mediator Fr. Arnold Crisostomo, “Boracay is so lucky that it has never been severely hit by the said super typhoon.”

He added that, “the special mass intentions will also open a gratitude to almighty God for saving Aklan as well as for the help it receives after the devastation.”

Furthermore, Crisostomo encouraged dioceses, schools and organizations to conduct their own activities and prayers to those typhoon-hit areas who remained upbeat despite the tragedy that struck them.

Meanwhile, churches around the country will simultaneously ring their bells at 6 p.m. on Saturday to mark the first anniversary of Yolanda, which left at least 6,300 people dead and 28,000 injured and destroyed billion worth of properties.
