COVID-19 case forces closure of church in Makati

The surge in COVID-19 cases has earlier forced the temporary closure of at least three other churches

The National Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Makati City was closed on Tuesday, January 4, after one of its priests contracted COVID-19.

In a brief statement, its rector and parish priest Father Roderick Castro said the church will be closed until January 17.

“During the closure, thorough disinfection and intensive sanitation will be done,” said Father Castro. “Churchgoers are requested to refrain from coming to the shrine,” he said.

Live streaming of Masses will continue as scheduled.

The surge in COVID-19 cases has earlier forced the temporary closure of at least three other churches in the Archdiocese of Manila.

The Sta. Maria Goretti Parish Church, the National Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus, and the Quiapo church have closed their doors.

The churches will undergo massive disinfection during the temporary closure.
