A formal ground breaking will be held today, October 31, 2009 at 3:00 PM for the “Santuario Do Redentor” or Shrine of the Redeemer at the Golden Haven Memorial Park at Bulua, Cagayan de Oro City. The giant statue of Christ the Redeemer in the center hill of the park is the focal point of the project. Set to be situated on the highest point of the property, Christ the Redeemer is seen to embrace the western section of Cagayan de Oro City. The occasion is timely for the All-Saints and All-Soul’s Day Holidays where people are expected to flock to cemeteries to pay respects to their loved ones.
“Golden Haven Park – envisioned to be “The Most Beautiful Park in Cagayan de Oro” lies on a massive ten-hectare area atop the naturally beautiful Bulua Heights.
