Tagbilaran City Santacruzan 2014 Highlights: Part 2

One would definitely know that it’s time to say goodbye to summer when the annual Santacruzan, a revered cultural- religious activity in the Philippines is mounted.

There was excitement in the capital city of Bohol last May 31, 2014 when the City Government of Tagbilaran, in coordination with the Cathedral Parish of Saint Joseph the Worker, through the Confraternity of Our Lady of Lourdes (COLL), had another unifying activity that capped the month- long Maytime revelry through the Flores de Mayo and Santacruzan.

The youthful and very dynamic Mayor Baba Yap, with the support of First Lady Jane Censoria Cajes- Yap & assistance of the cathedral parish, was very hands- on in the staging of the religious- cultural event. The event aimed to develop and promote the potentials of Tagbilaran City as a tourist destination, in addition to its being a gateway to the province of Bohol.

Here are the highlights of the Santacruzan Procession:
