This year’s Winter Sinulog was celebrated January 17, Sunday and as always a large multitude of devotees attended the celebration! Inspite of the inclement weather many people came, prayed and worshiped our beloved Santo. Nino.
The principal celebrant of the Eucharistic Celebration was Rev. Fr. Anthony Burrascano, O.S.A. Rev. Fr. Paul Morrissey, O.S.A. was the con-celebrant. Rev. Fr. Wilson Capellan took part as homilist.
We are very proud of our Olde St. Augustine’s Church being the official home of the Santo Nino in the United States. Faithfuls, first timers and devotees came to profess their faith and devotion to our beloved Santo Nino.
This event coincides with the traditional Sinulog which happened about the same time in Cebu City, Philippines. Olde St. Augustine’s is the central place for Sinulog activities and the biggest event is in August which was so designed because of the summer weather and the convergence into our city of visiting Sto. Nino devotees.
Olde St. Augustine Parish Choir gave a wonderful performance during the Mass with Mr. Kim Barrozo – Choir Director. The cantors were: Margaret Lafferty & Chesley Turner; Violinist: Isabel de Ramos.

Thanks also to: Dr. Lita Manguba; Babay Dacanay, Ferdie Luyun; Rey Borres, Volunteers and to all the hardworking people of OSAC who helped in this year’s celebration!
