Your gift on her birthday? – Nativity of Our Blessed Lady

Nativity of Blessed Virgin MaryYou bet’cha. Today’s your lucky day.

You can thank Our Blessed and all-Immaculate Lady, St. Mary the Mother of God, whose feast – her holy Nativity – we celebrate September 8.

Thanks to your Mother, in other words, you don’t have to miss the pilgrimage because you were ‘a day late and a few dollars short’ (again?) this year.

Besides ‘alms for palms‘ to sponsor you, the organizers’ policy is that no one is turned away from pilgrimage for want of the registration fee.

Not only on September 8, but this year on 11 other special days, families and groups can still avail of the discounts which expired June 1 when they register together – minimum of three pilgrims.

Which special days?

There are an even dozen before September 23.

Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary – July 2
Our Lady of Mount Carmel – July 16
St. Anne, Mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary – July 26
St. Ignatius of Loyola – July 31
Vigil of the Dormition & Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary – August 14
Feast of the Dormition & Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary – August 15

Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary – September 8
St. Peter Claver, SJ – September 9
Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary – September 12
Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary – September 15

Is there anything else one has to do besides register on those days?


1. First, the discounted fee must be paid online, via PayPal. (One does NOT need a PayPal account to use the service; just a valid credit card.)

2. Also, the registrants have to ask for the discount in writing by including a note/request in the “description” field when paying online via PayPal, or by e-mailing the Director.

The note requesting the discount should read: “Humble request for discounted fee in honor of The Blessed Virgin Mary on her holy Nativity”.

3. Finally, the payment must also be postmarked on the day of the feast.
