First Fr. McGivney statue inside Church compound unveiled


The world’s first Father Michael J. McGivney statue inside a parish church’s compound was unveiled in Metro Manila last June 2.

The 4-feet statue of the “Venerable Servant of God” can be found at the Sta. Teresita Parish Church in Sta. Mesa Heights, Quezon City.

McGivney is the founder of the Knights of Columbus, whose cause for canonization is being investigated by the Vatican.

No other than Fr. Rally Gonzaga, O.F.M. Cap., requested that the American-born priest’s statue be built inside the church’s compound, saying McGivney’s life inspired him more to serve the Church.

The parish church is surrounded with statues of various saints except McGivney.

“He is not yet a saint but he is in the process of sainthood. We can say that even if he is only a venerable, we have already put him on the pedestal in front of church and we honor him,” Gonzaga said.

“He is, we can say, a gift to the church, gift to the Knights of Columbus,” he added.

The project was initiated by incoming Faithful Navigator Danilo del Rosario of Maharlika Assembly ANC 1881, incoming Grand Knight Francis Layag of Sta. Teresita Council 12308 and other K of C officials from different councils.

Bro. Arsenio Isidro Yap, K of C Luzon State Deputy, said the statue would help raise awareness about their McGivney. He also hopes that other councils will adopt such kind of project.

A movement to raise the awareness about McGivney is currently underway in the Philippines.

Last month, the K of C has launched a website an online portal in the Philippines to gather accounts of miracles or answered prayers attributed to its founder, Fr. Michael McGivney, in a bid to promote his beatification.

The website www.fathermcgivney.ph was set up to allow Filipinos, among others, to post the favors they received through the intercession of Fr. McGivney. (Ronalyn Regino)
