#Blessed: Edwin Olivarez welcomes Sta. Rita relic in Parañaque
Edwin Olivarez welcomed an icon of Catholicism to Parañaque City.
The mayor led a ceremony to welcome the Holy Relics of Sta. Rita De Cascia to the city on Independence Day, which included a bone, casket and tunic lodged at a local church named in her honor in Baclaran.
The mass and ritual was presided by Bishop Jesse E. Mercado, D.D., with fellow politikos among the few attendees allowed to enter church premises. Indeed, it is a once in a lifetime event.
