Longos Parac-Parac goes out for the Barangay Visitation

31 October 2009 – San Fabian. Barangay Longos Parac-Parac is the host of this week’s Barangay Visitation of the images of the Divine Mercy and the Blessed Virgin Mary. It stayed in the barangay for one week, from 24-31 October 2009. On the last day, the whole barangay went out for the farewell mass and the procession.

It was one of the biggest gatherings for the weekly Barangay Visitation. After the mass, there were 39 children who received the Sacrament of Baptism. There was one couple who received the sacrament of Matrimony.

Longos Parac-Parac has no chapel. The regular monthly mass is celebrated at the Day Care center. The barangay is considered one of the more depressed areas in San Fabian. During the last typhoon that inundated San Fabian, Longos Parac-Parac was one of the barangays that was heavily flooded.

Included in the visitation is Longos Amangunan which is a sitio of Longos Parac-Parac.

The sacred images were placed at the stage of the barangay where a makeshift shelter was built.

The procession brought the sacred images to the next barangay, Longos Central.
