Masses will be held at 6:30 a.m. and at 8 a.m. The Misa Cantada will be held at 10 a.m. A motorcade/procession will be held at 2 p.m. Novena masses were offered from Nov. 18 to 26.

Commemorative masses will also be celebrated Saturday at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Sucat, Muntinlupa City,

The Blessed Virgin Mary revealed to Saint Catherine Laboure the image of the medal that she wanted to be made. The Miraculous Medal, which ranks in importance with the holy rosary and the brown scapular among devout Roman Catholics, features the world surrounded by an oval frame, over which were engraved: “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you.”

Minted in 1832, St. Catherine said the Holy Mother had promised that “all those who wear the medal with faith and confidence will receive abundant grace. It must be worn close to the heart to bring healing and protection to its wearer,” she was told.
