Nuestra Señora Inmaculada Concepcion de Oslob
Taken during the visit of the image at our Parish, Archdiocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes. The image is making parish visits throughout the parishes in the Archdiocese of Cebu in order to encourage people to donate financially for the reconstruction of the Old Oslob Parish Church which was razed to the ground by fire last March 26, 2008 as well as to spread devotion to Our Lady under this advocacy. Plans are already set to recomstruct the Church but they lackfinancial aid and taht they wish that at least during their Fiesta this coming December 8, the church would already have its roof.
The image is said to be miraculous having survived many fires that attacked it, it still remained unscathed. Also at one time when it was stolen, it was miraculously returned by an unknown person and news spread through the town that the thiefs residence was razed to the ground by fire. It also is invoked by the people of Oslob in times of despair and has remained their constant refuge and joy time then and now.
The image is older than the church itself.
