Father McGivney Pilgrimage Begins in Mindanao


The pilgrimage of the statue of Venerable Father Michael McGivney kicked off in the Southern Philippines at San Pedro Cathedral in Davao City on May 28.

Hundreds of churchgoers attended the Rite of Reception of the 4-foot statue led by Balbino Fauni, Mindanao Deputy, and other state officers. In an address, Fauni encouraged the crowd to pray for the intercession of Father McGivney and report any favors or possible miracles to the Father McGivney Office in Manila. While he was outlining the life, legacy and heroic virtues of Father McGivney, prayer cards and posters were distributed to the churchgoers.

After the Rite of Reception, a Mass was celebrated by Father Gary Glenn Yba, who was representing Davao Archbishop Romulo Valles. Father Yba said that the archbishop was thankful for the opportunity to spread devotion to the Knights of Columbus founder.

According to Fauni, the pilgrimage will continue for a 12 months through the parishes of Mindanao, with the statue staying for three days at each church.

Plans call for the statue to be brought to General Santos City in August and to move from there to the following areas: South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Cotabato, Kidapawan, Davao del Sur, Davao del Norte, Surigao del Sur, Surigao City, Agusan, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Iligan, Dipolog, Oroquieta, Zamboanga and Basilan.

Pilgrimages with other Father McGivney statues were launched earlier in the Philippine jurisdictions of Luzon and Visayas. Ronalyn Regino
