The veneration of Our Lady of Peñafrancia is one of the oldest and largest Filipino Marian celebrations held in San Diego.
After nine weeks of devotional prayers, the Solemnity of Our Lady of Peñafrancia will be celebrated by Cardinal Robert W. McElroy, accompanied by diocesan clergy.
This year’s theme is “Mary accompanies us in our journey toward a synodal Church.”
The Mass, organized by San Diego Peñafrancia devotees under the leadership of Pag-Iribang Bikolnon-United Bicol, will be live-streamed through the page sdcatholic.org/penafrancia2022
The Pag-iribang Bikolnon is a consortium of Filipino organization dedicated to nurturing and promoting the Catholic faith and culture through the members’ devotion to Our Lady of Peñafrancia.
