St. Peregrine Diocesan Shrine represented at the International Conference for Rectors and Operators of Sanctuaries November 30, 2018- Shrines and sanctuaries should be places of welcoming and mercy where the sacraments can be received, Pope Francis said Thursday to an international gathering of shrine rectors and pastoral workers. “The shrine,” the pope said Nov. 29 in the Vatican's Sala Regia, “is a privileged place to experience mercy that knows no boundaries. In fact, when mercy is lived, it becomes a form of real evangelization, because it transforms those who receive mercy into witnesses of mercy,”.

With Jesus and His Mother Mary, who went in haste to help Elizabeth, we encourage our youthful peers to hasten and join in realizing the goals of the Year of the Youth.

CBCP STATEMENT ON THE DIVORCE BILL March 23, 2018- The fact that we’re one of the last few countries without a divorce law until now speaks volumes about us as a nation.

Perhaps they can also consult experts in various fields in order to consider the many
