Our Lady of Piat Shrine

For more than 400 years the pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Piat has been a significant event in the lives of devotees of the people in the Cagayan Valley. More than anything else, the Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Piat is a devotional and spiritual journey from one's home to the Shrine of Our Lady of Piat to venerate Our Blessed Mother, to ask for Her intercession or to thank Her for favors received from God through Her intercession. A pilgrimage normally takes place once a year where a group of devotees of Our Lady of Piat agree to travel together to visit her Shrine and undertake some devotional or spiritual activities. The pilgrimage, in order to be more meaningful and give it a religious significance should start with a pilgrim's prayer before departure.


The Altar


We announce with joy and prayerful greetings that that we have launched the Piat Website: http://www.piatbasilica.com. to reach the hearts and minds of the Devotees of Our Blessed Mother of Visitation of Piat all over the world. This communication milestone marks a significant step towards the promotion of Marian devotion that spans more than 400 years of continuous intercession for all those who seek the assistance of Our Lady of Piat. With the Internet the great distance that separate us from the Marian Center of devotion in Piat, Cagayan has been bridged and we can now communicate at cyber speed to inform you all about the wonderful things that Our Blessed Mother is continuously doing for us and what we are doing in veneration and thanksgiving for all the favors we have been receiving from Our Heavenly Father through Her intercession.

The official launching of our Website has also been inspired by Pope Paul II's exhortation to the apostles of the Word to take advantage of the opportunities of Internet and Information Technology to spread the Kingdom of God, of peace and love of our neighbor.

Through this communication medium we are providing you advance information on the activities that will be undertaken in commemorating the 400th Year Anniversary of the Our Lady of Piat and the 50th Anniversary of her Canonical Coronation and in this regard, should you wish to attend the Quadricentennial celebrations you may well prepare for it ahead of time. We will continue updating you on recent events and future plans that the Basilica Minore of Our Lady of Piat will be undertaking. In the future we will be documenting through the Internet individual testimonies of devotees of Our Lady of Piat who have received special favors from Her. We encourage those, who, throu7gh their special devotion to Our Blessed Mother of Piat, have received what they have prayed for, to make testimonies in the same manner. It is a spiritually significant way of giving meaning and living Jesus last worlds, "Son, behold thy Mother."

It is the context of Mary's relationship to God and His Son Jesus, and Her role in our redemption that we earnestly encourage you all to use the Internet that we may continually keep in touch with the Marian Center - the Basilica Minore of Our Lady of Piat. Use it also in providing opportunities to our brothers and sisters to increase with fervor their devotion to Our Holy Mother, that they band themselves together in unity and promote a Marian Culture of Devotion to Our Lady of Visitation of Piat. For your information we are providing you a link to some of Our Lady of Piat devotees and promoters in the United States who are too willing to advice you on how to organize a community of devotees of Our Lady of Piat in your respective areas.

In God's divine providence and blessings, I remain continually praying that you may increase in your love of God and your neighbors through our blessed Mother's intercession.
