Twenty six (26) couples in Tacurong City said “I do” for free on December 14, 2018 in a Kasalang Bayan sa Pasko sponsored by the City Government of Tacurong through its Local Civil Registry headed by Ms. Josephine Balino.
The city government shouldered the couples’ application fees, marriage license fees, and church fees, among others. Each couple were also provided with a free wedding cake, giveaways, and their own framed wedding portrait.
Members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod and heads of offices of the LGU served as principal sponsors. Rev. Fr. Diosdado Esguerra solemnized the ceremony at the San Pedro Calungsod Parish.
Registration for this mass wedding began in September 2018 on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.
A civil mass wedding for 29 couples, still sponsored by the city government, is scheduled on December 29, 2018 in Brgy. New Carmen, Tacurong City.
