AN IMPOSING icon of the Divine Mercy is set to welcome pilgrims and visitors from all over the world who plan to visit Cebu in time for the 500th year of Christianity in the country in 2021.
A lay foundation, the Shrine of the Divine Mercy de Cebu Foundation Inc. (SDMCF), plans to construct a Divine Mercy icon on top of a mountain in Barangay Garing, Consolacion in northern Cebu.
The icon will rise some 800 feet above sea level.
The archdiocesan shrine of the Divine Mercy in Garing will sit on a six hectare lot donated by the family of former Consolacion mayor Avelino Gungob, Sr.
The second project, she said, will be a giant image of Our Lady of Fatima to be built in the northern town of San Remigio.
