The annual Traslacion or the Black Nazarene Procession in Cagayan de Oro City.
The procession started at 5:00AM from St. Augustine Cathedral going to Don A. Velez Street all the way to Licoan Highway turn right going to Gaisano then to the Nuestro Padre Jesus Nazareno Parish Church.
This celebration commemorates the transfer of the image from the Recollect Church in Intramuros to Quiapo Church in 1787. The life-sized black wooden statue of the Black Nazarene was brought to Manila by a group of Augustinian Recollect friars from Mexico on May 31, 1607.
First enshrined at the first Recollect Church in Bagumbayan (now part of Rizal Park), the Black Nazarene was transferred to a bigger Recollect Church in Intramuros, Manila in1608.
Here in Cagayan de Oro City, the same scenario has been commemorated for few years now using the replica of the Black Nazarene from Quiapo Church.
