As the number of pilgrims and devotees grow every year, developments continue within and around the Divine Mercy Shrine Complex in Ulaliman, El Salvador City, Misamis Oriental.

Shown below is another project set to begin right next the the main entrance of the Shrine. The proposed St. Ignatius Hospice Foundation Inc. will house Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel, St. Peregrine Cancer Patients Center, and an Administration Building.

The Divine Mercy Church is almost done except for minor work on the basement. Masses are already being held at the church. Photos were taken during the 2nd Philippine Apostolic Congress on Mercy (PACOM 2013) where more than a thousand delegates from all over the country converged at the shrine. You could see the unique “crown of thorn” design on the sides of the church.
