Lucena Cathedral, Lucena City
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Lucena (Latin: Dioecesis Lucenensis) is a diocese of the Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines with the seat in Lucena City. The Roman Rite Latin Church diocese was erected in 1950 from the Archdiocese of Lipa to become a suffragan diocese of the Archdiocese. In 1977, the Diocese of Boac, which covers the parishes in the island-province of Marinduque, was created and separated from Lucena. In 1984, the Diocese of Lucena was further divided with the creation of the Diocese of Gumaca, which covers the municipalities of Quezon province east of Gumaca, Quezon.
The Niyogyugan Fiestival
For Filipinos, the coconut tree is the tree of life. This is especially the case in Quezon province, where coconut is one of the dominant crops. On Saturday, young Quezonians from different high schools in the province took part in a parade celebrating the niyog.
The aptly called Niyogyugan Festival—a combination of the words "niyog" and "yugyog"—aims to shine the spotlight on the coconut and coconut products, which have been the main source of income for many Quezonians since the early part of the century. It also aims to “shake” the industry by featuring the province's culture and traditions, and how the coconut tree affects the life of a typical Quezonian.
Quezon hopes that the Niyogyugan Festival, which only began in 2012, will become a major event on the country's calendar of festivals.
