The members of the Apostleship of Prayer, headed by Dra. Lou Sarmiento, together with some members of the Block Rosary Crusade, Legion of Mary, Daughters of Mary Sisters and other SLRP parishioners, went to the National Shrine of the DIVINE MERCY at Sta. Rosa 1, Marilao, Bulacan last March 22, 2011.
This is a yearly activity of the AP - to visit holy churches especially during the Lenten season. This year, it was to the DIVINE MERCY Shrine. Led by Ate Linda Duritan, the group meditated and prayed on the fourteen stations of the Way of the Cross. It was followed by deep reflective prayers in front of the Tabernacle at the Main Altar inside the Church.
After completing the spiritual exercise, the group decided to have a hearty breakfast, merienda and lunch, rolled into one,'Brunch'. Picture-taking, souvenir-buying, completed the visit to the shrine. Although it was only a half-day "mini-pilgrimage”, there was 'complete indulgence' for it made the group closer to one another and above all CLOSER TO GOD!
