The 12th Diocesan Mt. Samat Pilgrimage started at 10:00AM and ended around dinnertime. Thousands of students and delegates cheerfully trekked the 7-kilometer walk from the foot of the mountain to the World War II monument called, “Dambana ng Kagitingan” (Shrine of Valor). This year it was attended by more than 40,000 people from different walks of life – both from Bataan and outside Bataan, including international tourists as well.

The moment we arrived and exited our van, I immediately felt the presence of the Holy Spirit. Everyone was in high spirits and no way was anyone or anything going to dampen it. Happiness and positivity could easily be felt around the area.

Since we were invited by Bataan Tourism, we were able to go to the rooftop of the Colonnade to get a better view of the crowd at the 12th Diocesan Mt. Samat Pilgrimage.
