A year-round visitation of the Pilgrim Jubilee Cross was launched in the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan by his Most Reverend Socrates B. Villegas D.D. (Archbishop of Lingayen-Dagupan) during the celebration of Chrism Mass at St. John the Evangelist Cathedral. Last April 12-14, 2018, the Chaplaincy of St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort was blessed to be part of this Archdiocesan activity in preparation for its Centennial Jubilee Celebration of the creation of the Diocese of Lingayen in the year 2028 as declared for a Decade of Communion.
The chaplaincy had organized activities upon the arrival of the said Pilgrim Cross. It started with an opening Para-Liturgy and Eucharistic Celebration presided by the parish priest, Rev. Fr. Santiago E. Casing, SMM. The three days and two nights stay of the Pilgrim Jubilee Cross were filled with prayerful adoration led by the Parish Youth Ministers and Barangay Pastoral Councils under the jurisdiction of St. Louis-Marie de Montfort Parish.
The aim of this visitation is to raise awareness about the Church and form devotion to the Lord and loyalty to our Mother Church. It was a grace-filled experience for the parishioners and pilgrims. Glory to Jesus in Mary! Glory to God Alone!
