Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 29) — The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) announced March 29 would be a "Day of Prayer" dedicated to frontliners in the fight against COVID-19.

In a circular sent out on Friday, CBCP President Archbishop Romulo Valles invited dioceses to offer prayers for health workers on Sunday.

Valles said the prayers would be in all masses, rosaries, and even during "moments of personal prayer."

“Of course we continue praying our Oratio Imperata,” Valles added.

Valles also appealed to dioceses to open churches as temporary shelters for hospital workers who may not want to go home for fear of possible transmission.

“May our prayer move us to action,” he said.
