Our Lady of Manaoag has a permanent home at the Shrine

Folk tradition has it that the Blessed Mother showed herself to a middle aged farmer and gave him the message on where she wanted her church to be located, She showed herself on a low tree amidst the glow of heavenly light. Manaoag is known more as a pilgrimage town than anything else.

This feast has been celebrated at the Shrine since 2003.   The Shrine’s Filipino community celebrates our Blessed Mother Mary with their gift of song, worship and tradition.   Much like the Italian custom, you depart full of the Holy Spirit and good food.

Praying with St. Mary Magdalene, ‘Apostle to the Apostles’, A Morning Retreat
22 May 2018

Praying with St. Mary Magdalene, ‘Apostle to the Apostles’, A Morning Retreat

Saturday, July 20

10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Freewill donations gratefully received.

As the first witness to the resurrected Jesus, Mary Magdalene, was entrusted to carry the heart of Jesus to others.

How can we continue to carry the love of Jesus to those we meet in everyday life? How does the story of Mary Magdalene translate to the lives of men and women today? What do we know about this woman who has been called “Apostle to the Apostles”?

Through conversation, reflection, and creative prayer experience, we will share the story of Mary Magdalene as we celebrate in anticipation of her Feast Day, July 22. All are welcome.

Led by: Julie Berggren, MA

Julie is a spiritual director, chaplain, and retreat leader.
