Pilgrimage to Binondo

Last August 20, the parishioners of San Lorenzo set out on another pilgrimage, the second one this year. This time it was a visit to the Minor Basilica of San Lorenzo Ruiz in Binondo where Lorenzo Ruiz was born, grew up and served. A special mass was celebrated by our parish priest Fr. Luke and Fr. Matthias, who is assigned to the Basilica and who used to be a guest priest in SLRP.

After the mass, there was a brief photo session followed by a 30-minute talk on the life of San Lorenzo by a representative of the parish.

The remaining time was spent soaking up the sights, sounds and bargains of Chinatown. There were plenty of things to see, explore and definitely buy.
Lunch for most of the parishioners was held at the Jolibee outlet close to the church. Everyone left Binondo at 1pm and were back at the parish by 2pm.
