The Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help: Our Love and Devotion

In July of 2012, a Catholic Mission Station named after a title of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Our Lady of Perpetual Help was founded in a peaceful Sitio of Lomboy in Barangay Linambasan, Jamindan, Capiz upon the order of the Archdiocese of Capiz through Reverend Father Rowelyn Langurayan who was the outgoing Parish Priest of San Sebastian Parish during that time. 

It was Reverend Father John Denosta who was the first-ever Priest assigned to celebrate masses and to look after the spiritual needs of the faithful.

Father Denosta served for 6 years until July of 2018. He is well-loved by the people due to his sense of community and Spiritual leadership. For about 6 years, he was able to build and transform the Mission Station into a beautiful  Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish on June 27, 2018. Just a few days before the end of his service, he was able to witness and celebrate his success together with the Parishioners, devotees, and hundreds of Catholic Faithful.

Today, June 27, 2019, on the Feast Day of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, we have the successor of Father Denosta in the name of Reverend Father Jeffrey Estrella. It's been a year that he is in service to the faithful community not only of Barangay Linambasan but also from people coming from different barangays of the town of Jamindan.

On this feast day, our Archbishop of Capiz, Most Reverend Jose Advincula officiated the mass together with our Parish Priest Father Estrella, and other Priest from different Parishes.

Reverend Father Krys Seรฑeres, co-Parish Priest commissioned a large size iconic portrait of the Our Mother of Perpetual Help through the contributions of the faithful. The icon is placed on the left side of the front wall facing the altar and was blessed by Most Reverend Father Advincula on this feast day. 

The icon was made popular all over the world by the Redemptorist Fathers and has attracted flocks of devotees due to her known miracles of healing and granted special intentions.

I am a living testimony of the miracles of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help and I am grateful for the blessings I've received. Wherever I visit a church in her name, the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Cubao and the National Shrine of our Mother of Perpetual Help in Baclaran would never fail to grant my petitions.

We give the highest honor to the Mother of God in her blessed Title, the Our Lady of Perpetual Help. 
Today and in the years to come, the Parish will continue to accommodate and serve the ever-growing faithful community and even beyond our generation. 

We will protect and preserve this spiritual sanctuary so that the next generations will be able to witness its glory and miraculous powers to live in their hearts forever.
