SC Celebrates Christmas Virtually

December 17, 2020

Not even a pandemic can stop Chief Justice Diosdado M. Peralta and the Judiciary from celebrating Christmas in the Supreme Court on Thursday, December 17, 2020.

Themed Pasko ng Pasasalamat at Pagkakaisa sa Panahon ng Pandemya, the High Court’s virtual celebration kicked off with a thanksgiving mass, followed by a short program where the Chief Justice delivered his Christmas message.

Chief Justice Peralta, who at one point turned emotional, conveyed his unending gratitude to the SC officials and employees for all the support they had shown him not only from the time he was appointed 26th Chief Justice last year, but from the time he was named the 162nd Associate Justice of the Supreme Court in 2009.

The Chief Justice also pointed out that although the SC had to veer away from the usual merriment in celebrating the spirit of the Holidays, “it is during times of unease such as these that we stand resolute as a people and let our hopes burn the brightest.” (Courtesy of the SC Public Information Office)
