31 SEDP scholars (12 from Area 1, 10 from Area 2, and 9 from Area 3) attended the Annual Marian Youth Pilgrimage in Joroan, Tiwi Albay the Diocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Salvation- the Patroness of Albay.

This event aims to once again invite young people in expressing devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary implying this year’s theme: “Virgen Maria: Panalmingan nin mga Jovenes sa Eucaristia”.

“They were invited to mainstream the SEDP scholars to the Diocesan Youth Commission, to prepare them in joining the Parish Youth Ministry, and for them to experience a simple yet a meaningful Pilgrimage together with all the youth in the Diocese of Legazpi.” Joan Armero, SEDP Scholarship Coordinator, said.

Prior to the pilgrimage proper, the scholars also attended the orientation in SEDP Asenso Hall on September 30, 2016 where they also learned the History of Our Lady of Salvation in Joroan, Tiwi, Albay.

Every year, SEDP MDS invites SEDP scholars from the areas of Albay to attend the Marian Youth Pilgrimage. This is one of their scholarship benefits which are part of their Spiritual Formation.
