CFN celebrates the annual Feast of Santo Nino with the venerated statue of the Child Jesus of Prague. Devotion to the Child Jesus is ubiquitous and observed with reverence around the world. On January 11, the Santo Nino de Cebu, a newly acquired image from the Philippines, will join the CFN celebration.
The original statue was a gift from Ferdinand Magellan in 1521 to the Queen Humamay, wife of Rajah (King) Humabon. At the Basilica Minore the Santo Nino de Cebu is the oldest surviving Catholic relic in the Philippines along with the Magellan cross. CFN Feast of Sto Nino includes Illinois and Indiana devotees, who bring their Santo Nino statues for blessings during the Mass.
