a Pilgrimage Chaplain
November 13, 2019
It’s everyone’s nature to search for God, to search for something more absolute. Leave behind your everyday concerns and spend time in the presence of the divine. Embark on a 4-day Pilgrimage to the Divine Mercy and Malaybalay with a Pilgrimage Chaplain leaving on November 13, 2019. May this pilgrimage reconnect you with God and give you a sense of peace that you won’t be able to find elsewhere.
Begin your pilgrimage in Cagayan de Oro, Misamis Oriental, where you will head for the Divine Mercy Archdiocesan Shrine after lunch. The famous shrine is home to a 50-foot statue of the Divine Mercy, the tallest of its kind in the whole world. Conversions and healings have been attributed to the Dancing Sun Miracle, which was witnessed by 10,000 pilgrims on the Feast of the Divine Mercy on April 7, 2013. There is also a fountain of holy water, which is said to bring about healing. Celebrate Mass in the Divine Mercy Church.
Enjoy a scenic ride to Bukidnon until you reach the Dalisay Forest Park Resort, where you will spend two nights. Nestled at the foot of Mount Kitangland at 4,700 feet above sea level, the Dalisay Forest Park Resort boasts of its cool and relaxing ambience built for the family.
After a restful night, head for Malaybalay City in Bukidnon, to visit the Benedictine Monastery of the Transfiguration, a place of prayer, peace and guidance. Join the monks in their 11:30 morning prayers. Enjoy intimacy with God through the magnificent beauty of nature. Not to be missed is the Pyramid of Giza Church built by national artist, Leandro Locsin, well known for its unique and modern architecture.
Cap off your pilgrimage with a visit to the major sights of Cagayan de Oro and a Mass at the century-old St. Augustine Metropolitan Cathedral.
Join a 4-day Pilgrimage to the Divine Mercy and Malaybalay with a Pilgrimage Chaplain leaving on November 13, 2019. May this spiritual adventure be a deeply meaningful and life-changing experience that will stay in your hearts forever.
Dear Pilgrims' Center: My husband Aldo & I would like to praise & commend our Pilgrim Chaplain Fr. Dante Venus & our Tour Leader Bro. Monty for the very successful & memorable pilgrimage to Italy & the Holy Land we were very fortunate to join on March 26-April 8, 2018. It was very hectic to be sure, but still they managed our time very well that we were able to visit more places than was promised in the itinerary, and we are very appreciative of that. Likewise, the solemnity of the whole pilgrimage experience was still observed despite many of us in the group, myself included, often forgetting that we were pilgrims & not tourists 😉😉, taking photos, selfies, etc. instead of, or before focusing on what the local guide was explaining or on the scripture readings. I cannot fault us pilgrims on this because for many of us seniors, and I speak for my husband & I, that trip might be our first & last time to visit those places, so we made sure they were properly documented. Nonetheless, it was a truly spiritually uplifting & life-changing experience for us. We continue to thank our Lord for making that experience of a lifetime possible. Indeed, nothing is impossible for God! Thank you very much to Fr. Dante, Bro. Monty & to each of us pilgrims in the group for the prayers, love, care & concern shown to each other. Let us continue to pray for and with each other. It is my hope that we meet each other again soon, to strengthen our bonds of friendships. Most sincerely, Leclec CabusoraLeclec Cabusora
My husband and I just came back from a wonderful trip to Israel - with Franciscan Fr Reu Galoy. Thank you Pilgrim Center for the arrangements. We are so happy and satisfied with all that you have done for us. Kudos to Yanyan and Monty from Pilgrim Center, and Fr Reu and Ronin for your caring services. It was a spiritual journey and we felt the abiding presence of the Lord all throughout. - Ann Arguelles CortesAnn Arguelles Cortes
Our pilgrimage was worth all the hardships (I was having leg pains). We had an excellent leader in the person of Adrian, two priests Fathers Val and Ron, who gave us very nice pieces of advice and homilies, and of course the members of the group who were all very nice. Looking forward to join another pilgrimage.Emily Bautista
It was the most profound experience I had in my whole life....Walking with the Footsteps where Jesus walked made my life more grateful and humble....My faith become stronger as I express it...A growing faith is a sharing faith....TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!! SHALOM!Carmen Nierra
Vir & I would like to express our gratitude for a wonderful pilgrimage we had from Sept 5-18. From checking-in last Sept 5 & all during the tour, we felt the care from a family. No words can ever describe how thankful we are. I almost cried last Sept 8, (my birthday) when we (2 of us have the same birthday) were given a surprise mini celebration when after our dinner, we were given a cake. I really felt the love of a family then. All these things made possible because of your capable coordinator Ms. Ging Igual. She's such a wonderful leader. Kudos to her. Rest assured that i will refer your company to all my friends who are planning to go on pilgrimage . Good day & may God always guide & protect all of you in the Pilgrims' Center/ Executive Resources, Inc. Cora Franca PilgrimCora and Vir Franca
I am honored to be included in this pilgrimage. The Pilgrims' Center has very good itineraries worth remembering. No hours wasted. They took very good care of us in spite of our big number of 47 people. The daily mass and homilies of Fr. Manny Cruz held in different shrines and churches were very inspirational and transforming. Accommodations were nice most especially the one on top of the Mountain with an awesome view built in 1909. It's like travelling back in time. I definitely would want to do it again with Pilgrim Center.Peter Joseph Mapua
The Pilgrims' Center always gives you the best. They let you feel like an Executive in terms of personal service & attention especially during pilgrimage. Their choices of pilgrimages and pilgrim chaplains are outstanding. You go back home very fulfilled and immersed...Marlene Silvestre
