ECONOMICS OF FIESTA RITUALS. ang tinuod nga bol-anon, himistahon (the true boholano goes to fiestas). fiesta is a religious celebration to honor the town's patron/ess saint. it has evolved into a social, economic, political, and cultural event for the population. let's explore the economic impact of carmen town fiesta limited to religious rituals alone.

photo above shows 3 envelopes making the rounds townwide days before the fiesta. the big one on top is called "labor of love offering" distributed to well-to-do families. proceeds go to bishop/priests' stipends, flower decors, and music band. the middle envelope is "ang akong kinasingkasing nga halad...". distributed/collected thru basic ecclesial community clusters proceeds of which go to general kumbento fiesta expenses like food, etc. the third envelope, "fiesta offering", is distributed to barangay sponsors for the nine novena masses dropped into the collection basket during novena mass. proceeds go to stipend for the priest celebrant. while the trend is to simplify with one-stop-shops, our parish diversifies with multiple envelopes.

the fiesta business. how much money is involved in carmen fiesta rituals? at the pontifical mass, the bishop gets 15k pesos. the concelebrating priests gets 1.2k each. free food/drinks including drivers and companions. with 50 priests, that rounds up to 60k. at 2k/each for 8 novena masses, total 16k. at the vesperas mass with carmenanon priests concelebrating for 1.5k/each, 10 priests would cost 15k. total stipends 106k. add 15k for flower decorations and 20k for music band, that's a total of 141k pesos for rituals alone. food not included asking 2 kilos of meat/family.

for a big town like carmen, 141K in 10 days is peanuts. carmenanons are charitable and willing to give money offering. after all, it's for san antonio abad. he's gonna repay it a hundredfold. but if we compare it with how much the parish spends yearly for christian education like catechism, youth programs, family formation, 141K is ostentatious. but the show must go on.

pres. d30 accused the phil. catholic church as mere rituals and pageantry. the way our town celebrates fiesta, he is right to the point.   (1/14/19)
