As the local Catholic church that time had embarked on a 9-year preparation since 2014 for the 500th anniversary of its Christianity, the Hermanos Mayores suitably chose the “SENOR STO. NINO: UGAT NG IKA- 500 TAONG ANIBERSARYONG KRISTIYANISMO NG PILIPINAS”as its Fiesta theme.
The 2016 celebration was organized with added undertakings aside from the regular fiesta programme. On the first week of January that year, the Hermanos 2016 successfully launched the fiesta by staging the “AULD LANG SYNE: A NIGHT OF MUSIC AND FASHION “a dinner,music concert and fashion show in one held at Malolos Sports and Convention Center. The event was produced mainly for the benefit of the Sto. Nino de Malolos Foundation Inc. and partly of Sta Ana de Hagonoy 2016 Fiesta.
And on the following week, the Batch 2016 participated in the Re- Dedication Ceremony on the occasion of the 25th ANNIVERSARY OF THE CONSECRATION OF THE STO. NINO CHAPEL. The regular festivities such as The Panaog Ceremony, Sto. Nino Exhibit Opening, 9-day novena,Dapit ceremony and took place after respectively. The fiesta culminated with the Hermanos High Mass at the Malolos Cathedral followed with the much-awaited Sto. Nino de Malolos Grand Procession.
