In a monumental return, the "Traslacion," the revered grand procession honoring the Feast of the Black Nazarene, concluded after an extensive journey lasting almost 15 hours at the Minor Basilica of Jesus Nazareno in Quiapo, Manila, on Tuesday night.

The Quiapo Church Command Post officially clocked the entire procession at precisely 14 hours and 59.10 minutes, starting at 4:45 a.m. and culminating at 7:44 p.m.

Spanning from the Quirino Grandstand in Rizal Park to the Minor Basilica along Quezon Boulevard, the procession marked a significant moment, notably being the earliest return of the Traslacion.

With more than 6.5 million devout participants, the procession of the Black Nazarene, encased in laminated tempered glass for the first time, drew an overwhelming number of devotees, reaching a staggering count of 6,532,501 attendees from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Philippine National Police reported increased efficiency in the movement of the revered Black Nazarene image's carriage, highlighting a notably swifter pace compared to previous years.

The grand procession, suspended for three years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, made a powerful comeback this year after last year's adaptation—a Walk of Faith—to commemorate the annual feast, foregoing the traditional grand procession.
