The 14th Marian exhibit of the Church-run Radio Veritas will be held at SM North, EDSA, Quezon City from June 6 to 20, 2016.
As Radio Veritas continuously propagates the devotion to Our Blessed Mother, the station will hold the “Mary and the Saints in the Year of the Eucharist and the Family” exhibit that will feature canonically crowned and popular venerated images of Mary from various parts of the country as well as images of the Saints with devotion to and writings about the Eucharist and the family such as St. Therese, St. Padre Pio and many others.
Radio Veritas President Rev. Fr. Anton C.T. Pascual encouraged the public to foster devotion to Our Blessed Mother.
“We encourage the Catholic faithful to visit and support the Marian exhibit and foster devotion to Mary Blessed Virgin, Mother of God and Mother of Church, because she is the path towards salvation and peace,” Fr. Pascual said.
A formal opening and blessing of the exhibit will be held on June 6, 2016, at 2:00 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to public during mall hours from 10 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. For inquiries, please call Ms. Renee Jose or Mr. Rey Isabela at (02) 925-7932 to 39 local 129.
