TACLOBAN CITY — Sunday masses in the villages of Naval, Biliran were canceled due to the rising cases of COVID-19 in the province.

Masses at the cathedral, located in Naval town, however, will continue.

The cancellation of masses in the villages and even at sitios or sub-villages is an “preemptive measure to avoid and to lessen the possible transmission of the virus,” the advisory said.


“We encourage our dear parishioners to follow our live streaming masses at 10 a.m.,” it added.


The diocese, which is under Bishop Rex Ramirez, also asked the faithful to pray for the intercession of their patron, Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, for health and safety in the communities.

The town of Naval has been experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases in the past days.

The town has 655 COVID-19 infections since the pandemic started last year. It now has 89 active cases.
