January 1, 2018 – St. Peregrine Laziosi Diocesan Shrine. With the parish priest, Rev Fr Pascual “Aloy” Ma. Salas, OSM presiding, and Rev Fr Leonard Ma Guiang, OSM and Rev Fr Waren Ma. Campilan, OSM concelebrating, the parish community welcomed the new year 2018 with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist for the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God.

The midnight mass commenced at 9 in the evening to allow the parishioners to return to their homes in safety, ample time before firecrackers are set off to welcome in the new year.

The St. Peregrine Chorale chimed their harmony in this joyous celebration of the Mother of God.
