'Fallen in Love with the Filipinos'

I can't believe it, but my visit to El Salvador, Mindanao, is coming to an end. Brother James Cervantes, MIC, and I are completing our five-week visit here, and we will be going on to Manila on Saturday, July 11. There, we will be staying at the Archdiocesan Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Mandaluyong City.

Brother James and I have had a very blessed and grace-filled time here at Divine Mercy Hills in El Salvador. View a photo gallery of our trip.. The first week here was difficult, but now I'm accustomed to the slower pace of life.

'Hello from Divine Mercy Hills!'

Hello from Divine Mercy Hills in El Salvador City on Mindanao Island! Brother James Cervantes, MIC, and I are currently in the Philippines for our summer ministry. Last year, with three Polish priests serving in two different locations, the Marians of the Immaculate Conception opened a new mission helping to spread Divine Mercy and devotion to Mary Immaculate in this island nation. The first location is at the Archdiocesan Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Mandaluyong City in Metro Manila. The second location is at Divine Mercy Hills on Mindanao Island.

Marians Celebrate Filipino Day!

by Mary Kathryn Volpone

The Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception hosted the Third Annual Filipino Day on Saturday, June 27, at the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Mass. Father Anthony Gramlich, MIC, rector of the National Shrine, greeted more than 500 pilgrims who arrived in cars and on 10 buses from Canada, New Jersey, New York, and the Boston area. This was a day to celebrate Filipino heritage as well as to reflect upon how God is calling all Filipinos to spread the message of The Divine Mercy.

Next Stop: The Philippines

By Francis Bourdon

As a sign of its commitment to its new mission in the Philippines, the Congregation of Marians of the Immaculate Conception made history on May 21, by commissioning two lay missionaries to help spearhead the effort.

Elzbieta "Ela" and Zygmunt "Ziggy" Chodzko-Zajko were formally accepted as the first lay missionaries in the Congregation's 336-year history. The ceremony took place during Holy Mass at the Basilica of Our Lady of Lichen, in Poland.
