Traslacion 2018 ends as Black Nazarene returns home to Quiapo church

The Manila Police District (MPD) will implement a 48-hour gun ban in the city in line with the feast of the Black Nazarene next week.

Around 380,000 people attended the Manila procession, based on an early estimate by police.

Church leaders in Manila appealed to Black Nazarene devotees to observe cleanliness and care for the environment during this year's feast on January 9.

The official also said that Estrada suspended work at the city hall except the department directly involved in the event.

Coronel said the image of the Black Nazarene would no longer pass through Lagusnilad Bridge and instead counterflow to the westbound lane of P. Burgos street heading toward Jones Bridge.

The Philippines is Asia's Catholic bastion with a flock of more than 80 million.

"Actually, we already started last December 31".

In 2006, a male devotee died after a wooden plank covering a manhole collapsed.

Traslacion 2018 ends as Black Nazarene returns home to Quiapo church

Thousands of policemen and soldiers were deployed to ensure security.

The administration of Quiapo Church on Monday said 18 million devotees were expected to flood the streets of Manila during the procession or the Traslacion from Quirno Grandstand to the Quiapo Church basilica.

Quiapo Church Parochial Vicar, Father Douglas Badong, said they were ready for the annual celebration.

Estrada said he "can only encourage the national government offices and the private office of Manila to exercise prudence and sound discretion in suspending work for the safety and welfare of their employees and personnel".

This year's Traslacion, or the reenactment of transfer of the Black Nazarene from Intramuros to the Quiapo Church, took about the same time as 2017's procession.

A devotee for 30 years, 61-year-old Julio Castillo watched from the sidelines of the procession Tuesday after both his feet were fractured in a motorcycle accident last month, leaving him in a wheelchair.

Msgr. Hernando Coronel of the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene discusses the route of the Traslacion at a news briefing.

Brig. Gen. Alan Arrojado, newly appointed commander of the military's Joint Task Force in the National Capital Region, said the military has always considered the possibility of a terrorist attack on the yearly feast.
