Divine Mercy Shrine

They start constructing the Divine Mercy Shrine last 2003 and fully completed on 2008. But before it was successfully completed the Divine Mercy Foundation of Mindanao (Phils.), Inc. having some struggle to find the location and raising money for the statue of Divine Mercy.

Divine Mercy Shrine is located at Brgy. Poblacion of El Salvador Misamis Oriental in which the biggest statue of the divine is served as a pilgrimage site for the many Divine Mercy devotees. This is the tallest of its kind not only in this predominantly Catholic country of the Philippines but in the whole world. With 70 ft. tall from the crown to the base while the body is 50 ft. tall and it was facing to the Island of Camiguin.

A short story on how the divine mercy was built in this location.

It started out with just a dream. A dream that turned into a vision. A vision turned into a mission and the mission became a reality. The Divine Mercy Foundation of Mindanao (Phils.), Inc. was inspired to establish the Diving Mercy Shrine in Mindanao. For three years, the said foundation prayed and discerned for confirmation from the LORD if the vision really came from HIM. Truly so, after that, the Board of Trustees was convinced that it truly was. They were really called to build the shrine.

The search for the ideal place started. In the vision, the shrine was to be built on a hill overlooking the sea. After, 10 months of searching for the said place, they have finally found 13 possible places before they found the ideal place. With the grace of God, they finally found a lot. A place that overlooked the sea. The date was very significant because it happened on a Friday during the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.

However, they faced a trial when they decided on purchasing the lot. During that time, they only had PHP2.9 million in the bank and the lot costs PHP 8.5 million. But, since the foundation answered the vision they took a large leap of faith that GOD will provide everything that they need to accomplish this mission. Planting seeds of faith, contributing their own resources and left an inspiration to people from all walks of life. These people were essential for purchasing the lot. Within two years, they have achieved in purchasing the said lot. Then the real mission began – building the shrine from scratch in the year 2003.

The foundation started to raise funds for the construction of the 50 ft. statue of the Divine Mercy. People who were touched by the LORD gave their part in making this dream possible. The sculptor, a multi-awarded Fine Arts Graduate of UP Los Baños, Mr. Nick Reyes was commissioned to do the design and construction works.

By 2008, the statue was completed. The base which is the Healing Chapel, the Heart, the Stairs, the stained glasses and aluminum claddings were all put in place. On the beautiful dawn of the birthday of the Blessed Mother of God, September 8, 2008, thousand and thousands of people coming from all over the country joined and witnessed the grand celebration.
