Some corrections: #1. According to the OCDS Angeles group, the procession is called Novenario - based on the word novena. #2. The OCD priest in one of the pictures with Fr. Toots, OCarm was not Fr. Ernie, OCD but Fr. Neil Maravilloso, OCD, the newest OCD priest (he was ordained only last May 30, 2009 in Iloilo).

Mariecor, OCDS

Another correction: The first group to perform was not the CMSSTCJ as captioned in the picture but its the group of the CMS Youth (Carmelite Missionries Secular, Youth).

Thanks Sis. Mariecor for the corrections. I didn't quite get the name of the dance. What I heard was luminario. =)
