Although religious gatherings have already been allowed with a limited number of people, Cubao Bishop Honesto Ongtioco said it was up to priests in his diocese to decide whether or not to open the parish.
“The bishop of Cubao, Most Rev. Honesto Ongtioco, D.D. has left it to the discretion of the parish priests of Cubao whether to already open their parish church in compliance with the directive of the local government or to postpone the opening of the church for face to face worship,” it further read.
