CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, PHILIPPINES — The six viewing chapels in the continuously developing City Memorial Park in Barangay Camaman-an, CDO, or the former Bolonsiri public cemetery, will be open to the public on October 28.
In his report during the Monday flag-raising ceremony on October 17, the head of the Clenro (City Local Environment and Natural Resources Office), Engineer Armen Cuenca, announced that six of the 12 viewing chapels would be open to the public soon.
The opening of the viewing chapels will be under the leadership of Mayor Rolando “Klarex” Uy.
In addition, Cuenca noted that these chapels will help the indigent residents of the city who use the streets to lay the wake of their departed relatives due to insufficient space in their homes.
Also included in the service of the City Memorial Park are three new vehicles that can be loaded with the dead to give them a decent journey to their final resting place.
With the opening of the chapels, the local government is hopeful that those grieving for their loved ones will be comforted.
