|Our Mother of Perpetual Help, Redemptorist Church , Cebu City|
The theme for this year is "Make Her Known", which is based upon this true story - After hearing the stories of miraculous happenings around the icon of Our Mother of perpetual Help, Pope Pius IX became convinced that it was God's will that the icon be given public veneration. So the icon was placed in the New Redemptorist Church in Rome in 1866. Two weeks after the icon was placed there, the Pope came and stood quietly before the icon for a long time and then exclaimed, "How beautiful she is!" He then told the Redemptorists, "Make Her Known Throughout The World."
