Barasoain Church Joins the Church in Red Wednesday
Barasoain Church again joined the parishes around the world to support those who have been persecuted for their faith in the annual "Red Wednesday" campaign held on 24 November 2021.
This year's Red Wednesday will be weaving together two of the recent events in the local and universal church: the 500 Years of Christianity in the Philippines and the preparation towards the Synod of Bishops in 2023.
Churchgoers and the entire church was lit up in red light to symbolize the plight of persecuted Christians around the world.
The activity is a yearly campaign first organized in the United Kingdom in 2016, the Philippines joined the campaign the following year and was institutionalized by the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines in 2020.
