MALELDO 2014 Kicks Off [ Monday, 14th of April 2014 | 3 years ago ]


Mayor Edwin Santiago launched today Maleldo 2014, San Fernando’s annual commemoration of the Lord’s passion and death, during Monday’s flag ceremony at the city hall.

During the program, the mayor officially presented the members of the Executive Committee that was tasked to prepare for the conduct of the city’s Lenten season attraction.

A dance interpretation on the Passion was then presented by the Sta. Lucia Parish Youth Ministry as a highlight of the launching.

During the press conference that followed, Mayor Santiago thanked the members of the committee for taking on the enormous responsibility for such a huge activity.

“Considering the great number of visitors and guests coming to San Fernando for this yearly affair, we assure our people that the City Government is prepared for any eventuality and has taken the necessary measures to ensure that order and safety prevail”, he added.

Maleldo in the city, as a re-enactment of Christ’s crucifixion, is practiced by devotees each year. The tradition originated in 1955 with the staging of the Via Crucis (Way of the Cross), a street play written in Kapampangan by Ricardo Navarro.
