Announcing: The arrival of the Poon Nazareno (Black Nazarene) to Orange County!

A replica of the Poon Nazareno (Black Nazarene) enshrined in Quiapo Church in Manila, Philippines, is scheduled to arrive in Orange County sometime this month of February 2024. This is made possible through the efforts of the Diocese of Orange San Jose Filipino Ministry (DOSJFM) in collaboration with the clergy of Alagad Ni Maria based in Anaheim.

The Poon Nazareno has millions of devotees around the world due to the miraculous healing it brings about to the faithful who believe in the Poon’s miraculous powers.  The arriving image statue is donated to DOSJFM by a Black Nazarene devotee from the Philippines who was miraculously cured of cancer. The grand welcome ceremony will be held on March 1, 2024 at the Christ Cathedral with Bishop Kevin Vann officiating the Mass. There will be a Procession at 4:30 PM preceding the Mass at 5:30 PM. Many Black Nazarene devotees in the Orange Diocese and neighboring dioceses are expected to attend this ceremony and hopefully fill up Christ Cathedral.

To prepare for this momentous event, volunteers are being recruited to form the Hijos del Nazareno, a group of religious men who will have a significant role in the care and maintenance of the Poon Nazareno image during its arrival and permanent stay in Orange County. Also being formed is the equally important Kababaihan ng Poon Nazareno consisting of female volunteers. If you or someone you know would like to be a volunteer, please e-mail us at [email protected].
