Nueva Vizcaya religious group celebrates roast pork fest


BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya: Today, more than a thousand local residents and those from neighboring provinces join a local religious group of their annual “lechon festival,” this time to partake in a real lechon, one most craved-for food among Filipinos.

Members of a local religious group called Vucal ng Pana-nampalataya will offer more than 100 roasted pigs on its 7th year and to celebrate the birthday of their founding leader, Dominador De Guia, known as “Couya” (Kuya) Doming.

Mostly living in the outskirts, membership of the group has grown to more than 5,000 Luzon-wide; they are known as environmentalists for their adherence to conservation and love for the environment.

The groups’ sanctuary and mission center is located at the Señora Falls here along the Sierra Madre mountain range, also the location of their annual lechon festival which will all be shared by both members and non-members of the spiritual group.
