MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Postal Corp. (PHLPost) has issued stamps commemorating the 500th anniversary of the arrival of the image of the Child Jesus in Cebu.

Postmaster General Norman Fulgencio led the launch of the commemorative stamps at the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño in Cebu City on April 14.

The event was attended by Papal Nuncio Archbishop Charles John Brown, Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma, National Historical Commission of the Philippines chairman Rene Escalante and presidential assistant for the Visayas Secretary Michael Lloyd Dino.
