  • REV. FR. LOURDESTO C. GARCIA commented on May 5, 2014:

    This is not a comments but a request: We have a parish here in the Philippines dedicated to St. John Mary Vianney, in the Diocese of Antipolo. We would like to know the mechanics on how to acquire a relic of the good saint. Is it possible? We would like our parish to be the Diocesan Shrine of St. John Mary Vianney. Looking forward for your help on this matter. God Bless you .
