Marian pilgrimage in Pangasinan
In celebration of the Holy Rosary Month of October, Green Faith Travels brings Marian devotees to three major churches in Pangasinan for a Pilgrimage of Faith and Heritage on Saturday, Oct. 27.
Pilgrims will visit the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag and the Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist in Dagupan City, where they may obtain papal blessings and plenary indulgence; and the Parish Church of Saints Peter and Paul in Calasiao, one of only 33 colonial churches declared a National Cultural Treasure in the country by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA).
Pilgrims will also visit the Shrine of Señor Divino Tesoro (Divine Treasure) across the Church of Calasiao. The “most divine image of our Lord Jesus Crucified” is venerated by the faithful who have received or are seeking His divine help and blessings.
The Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary and the Cathedral of Saint John were granted the Special Bond of Spiritual Affinity in April 2011 and February 2012, respectively, by two of only four papal basilicas in the world: Papal Basilica of Saint Mary Major and Papal Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls.
The Parish Church of Saints Peter and Paul, on the other hand, is the second oldest but well-preserved church in Pangasinan, with its centuries-old artifacts, painted ceilings, a Baroque retablo and a convent.
Pilgrimage tour cost of P2,500 per person includes round-trip transport via air-conditioned tourist bus, breakfast, lunch, snacks, water, juice packs, pilgrim’s kit with two blessed candles from the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag. Deadline for payment of registration fee is on or before Wednesday, Oct. 17.
