During the Lockdown, Mone presided over the Jolo Apostolic Vicariate of the Southern Philippines without the participation of believers. Charlie Inson took over. The Archbishop of Cotabato, Anjaleto Lambon, presided. The ceremony was held at the Cathedral Church, named after the mother of Immaculate Conception in Cotabato, with the participation of a few people due to the government’s decision not to attend religious ceremonies together. Hundreds of people, including family members, friends, and believers of the designated bishop, watched the process online.
