Fr. McGivney Pilgrimage kicks off in Visayas


The pilgrimage of Venerable Michael J. McGivney’s statue in Visayas kicked off Sept. 16 with thousands of people in attendance.

Fr. McGivney is the founder of the K of C and whose cause for canonization is strongly being promoted in the Philippines.

Earlier this year, the US-based K of C Supreme Office sent four 4-foot tall and gold-colored statues of Fr. McGivney to the Philippines.

One statue was sent each to Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao jurisdictions. The other one was erected within the compound of Fr. George Willmann, S.J. Center, Knights of Columbus Fraternal Association of the Philippines, Inc. head office in Intramuros, Manila.

The pilgrimage in Visayas started with a Mass presided by Jaro Auxiliary Bishop Gerardo Alminaza at the Jaro Metropolitan Cathedral with thousands of churchgoers led by officials of the K of C Visayas Jurisdiction.

Before the Mass, Visayas State Deputy Rodrigo Sorongon shared a brief background about Fr. McGivney in order for the parishioners to have an idea of who he is, what he has done, and why he is in line for canonization.

Copies of the maiden issue of Newsletter for the Cause of Venerable Michael J. McGivney were also distributed inside the Church.

Bishop Alminaza praised Fr. McGivney for his contribution to the Church and family life.

He also encouraged the parishioners to pray for the canonization of the K of C founder.

Noeni Nepomuceno, Visayas State Program Director, said the pilgrim statue will make rounds in selected parishes in Iloilo province until November before going to other parts of Visayas.

He said it is not impossible to have several devotees of Fr. McGivney in Iloilo because of his vision, “it is all about service, charity, and concern for the poor when he founded the Knights of Columbus.” (Ronalyn Regino)
