MANILA, Philippines —  Following more than 10 hours of procession, the image of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel de San Sebastian has met the Black Nazarene at Plaza del Carmen in front of Minor Basilica of San Sebastian at 2:52 p.m. known as the traditional “Dungaw” (look), igniting thunderous cheers of “Viva” among the faithful.

The image of Nuestra Señora del Carmen de San Sebastian was placed on a stage connected to the church, providing a poignant setting for reuniting with her son on the church’s balcony.


Subsequently, devotees immersed themselves in a five-minute prayer and singing of “Our Father.”


The “dungaw” marked the only stop in the entire procession and marked the 8th “dungaw” since its revival in the 2014 Traslacion.

In 2020, the image of Black Nazarene arrived at the San Sebastian Church at around 4:30 p.m., which was a later time than this year’s dungaw.

The image of the Black Nazarene left Quirino Grandstand at 4:45 a.m. on Tuesday.
