The practice of pilgrimage is rooted in Judaic tradition and the journey to Jerusalem.  In the early days of Christianity, the faithful continued this tradition, eagerly journeying to the Holy Land to visit and pray at those places associated with the life of Christ. During the sixth century, the pilgrimage became a penitential exercise.  In time, pilgrimages became acts of religious devotion that included not only penitential themes, but also those of intercession and gratitude.

The MMGC parish held a pilgrimage at the Shrine of  St Pregrine Laziosi during the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy.  From Alabang, the group walked to the shrine where a Mass was held. The group also venerated the first-class relic of St Pregerine.
