To provide public service to motorists and commuters, the Department of Public Works and Highways with its network of 16 Regional Offices and 180 District Engineering Offices nationwide set up from March 30, 2015 to April 6, 2015 "Lakbay Alalay" motorists assistance for the Lenten week.
Secretary Rogelio L. Singson said that prompt and reliable assistance on normal and emergency situation will be provided by DPWH personnel on a round-the-clock shift.
As the nation once again observes Holy Week starting Monday, the Department of Health (DOH) is reminding the public to be careful in engaging in crucifixion or being nailed on the cross and self-flagellation to express remorse of sorrow for their sins and wrongdoings.
According to DOH spokesperson Dr. Lyndon Lee-Suy, while the department is not in a position to really question such practice among some Catholic devotees, extreme care must be observed by the people who are engaging into such activities during the Lenten season.
In some areas of the country, particularly in Central Luzon, some Catholic devotees have themselves nailed to wooden crosses in a reenactment of Jesus Christ's crucifixion on Good Friday.
