Estacion General of the Holy Week

Last Tuesday, I saw people preparing and fixing altars at different points in Laoag City. I asked what was that all about and they said that it is the Estacion General. I took my camera and documented this event.

Estation General is usually held during the Holy Tuesday. It is the general station of the cross. It has 14 stations.

A mass is celebrated first at the church and the people go on a procession with the different images passing from first station to the last station. They recite a prayer at each station and then move around until they get back to the church. I saw many people who joined this event of the holy week and it was my very first time.
