On May 13, 2017, Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, consecrated the church of the St. Bernard Novitiate in Iloilo, on Panay Island, in the center of the Philippine archipelago.
On the anniversary of the apparitions of Fatima, the church was consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 13 priests and several hundred faithful were present.
The construction of the monumental church in the midst of the rice fields of Panay Island began in 2012. The work progressed at the pace set by the donations and the seasons:thus in 2014, the project was considerably slowed down by the consequences of Typhoon Hagupit.
The new church offers the St. Bernard Novitiate and the local faithful a magnificent house of recollection and prayer ad majorem Dei gloriam.
