Caloocan City started the celebration of its 60th Cityhood Anniversary with a thanksgiving Mass attended by Mayor Oscar “Oca” Malapitan, city councilors and local government staff on Feb. 14, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

“Katulad noong mga nakaraang taon, sinisimulan natin sa isang banal na misa ang ating Cityhood Anniversary. Ito ay bilang pasasalamat sa Panginoon sapagkat sa loob ng 60 taon ay nananatili tayong matatag, maunlad at masagana kahit sa hamon man ng pandemya (Just like last year, we mark our cityhood anniversary with a Holy Mass. This is to give thanks to the Lord for, in 60 years, we remain stable, progressive and prosperous amid the challenges brought by the pandemic),” Malapitan said.

He added that for this year’s celebration, there will be a simple motorcade.


The mayor also announced that the saved amount from the city budget will be used to buy sacks of rice that will be distributed to around 700,000 households in the city.

Caloocan was established as a city in 1962. Its Charter Day is celebrated every Feb. 16.
