MANILA— The Catholic Church in the Philippines will hold special prayers for the protection of Christians in persecuted countries on Monday.

Parishes across the country are expected to use the “Votive Mass”, a Eucharistic celebration for special purposes, for persecuted Christians found in the Roman Missal.

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines has earlier declared November 6 as the National Day of Prayer for Persecuted Christians.

In Quezon City, the Ateneo de Manila Grade School will hold a Votive Mass at the Chapel of the Holy Guardian Angels at 6:30am, while the Aid to the Church in Need (CAN) Philippines will hold it at the CBCP Chapel in Intramuros at 11:30am.
