According to Fr. Earl Allyson Valdez, who is part of the Quiapo Church preparatory committee, the Black Nazarene image will not be part of the procession.

“We instead encourage devotees to bring their own miniature replicas that they use for prayer and devotion. We also ask devotees to bring candles, rosaries and face masks,” he said.
