‘Washing of the Feet’ in Manila to include representatives of various sectors

Cardinal Jose Advincula of Manila will wash the feet of 12 persons from different sectors of society

Heeding the call of Pope Francis to become a more listening and compassionate church, Cardinal Jose Advincula of Manila will wash the feet of 12 persons from different sectors of society.

In a statement released by the Manila Cathedral, the representatives of the different sectors are:

  • Dr. Ryan B. Capitulo (LGBT community)
  • Mr. Raffy Tima (Media)
  • Atty. John Rex Laudiangco (Comelec)
  • Judge Caroline A. Rivera-Colasito (Judiciary)
  • Mr. Johhan Joseph Ararao (Intramuros Administration)
  • Mr. Cyril John Sunnga (Kalesa driver)
  • Mr. John Michael Roldan (Jeepney driver)
  • Mr. Manuel Jorge Manarang (Angkas rider)
  • Fr. Ernesto M. Panelo (Mission-station priest)
  • Sr. Liane Rainville, DW (Religious missionary)
  • Mr. Alberto A. Mandia (Farmer)
  • Ms. Iluminada Sta. Ana (Dumagat indigenous elder)

Last year, Cardinal Advincula washed the feet of those who have fulfilled important roles during the national elections.

The Washing of the feet is part of the Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, April 6, 2023, at the Manila Cathedral at five o’clock in the afternoon.

The gesture of washing the feet is part of the Liturgy that commemorates the Last Supper of the Lord with his apostles.

This significant practice of the Church is a symbolic act of humility, service and love and is associated with acts of charity and compassion.
