CBCP has marked the 8th of June 2013 as a day of a nation-wide National Consecration by the Filipino Catholic Faithful to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The CBCP has directed and urged all dioceses and parishes, schools and other institutions, even families, to offer a solemnly joint public act of en-trustment to the Blessed Mother, the Mother of the Filipino people, Queen of the Philippines.

SJMV Parish Participates in the Consecration Activity
We wish to do this as truly one people, “from Aparri to Jolo”: formally re-affirming that our country is indeed “pueblo amante de Maria” – bayang sumisinta kay Maria: a people truly loving Mary the Mother of Jesus the Lord, a people in a true sense “made one” by this love and devotion which we bear, by God’s great gift, to the Mother of God.
This solemn act of entrustment and consecration, we have said, is part of our Year of Faith observance, and part of the nine-year (“novena”) preparation for the 2021 celebration of the coming of the Christian Faith to our land in 1521 – five hundred years ago. But we hold in our minds and hearts even deeper grounds for this significant forthcoming event.
