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.
Meanwhile, the front entrance of the Divine Mercy Shrine now has a beautiful gate.
