Iriga: Caceres archdiocese launches app on Peñafrancia devotion


The Archdiocese of Caceres has launched its first mobile app, which will provide devotees with one-stop access to all matters related to Our Lady Peñafrancia devotion.

Besides prayers, event schedules, and faith testimonies, the ‘InaPeñafrancia’ app will also help users keep track of Peñafrancia activities abroad.

The archdiocese’s Commission on Social Communications said its primary aim is to further promote the devotion to Our Lady of Peñafrancia.

“This will assist the devotees to foster more devotion and deepen their faith in God,” it said.

“This is regional devotion that has been spreading throughout the globe,” it added.

The app is currently free and available on iOS and Android versions.

The device software was released as the archdiocese prepares to commemorate the centenary of the pontifical coronation of the image of Our Lady of Peñafrancia next year.

Pope Benedict XV authorized the canonical coronation of the image on May 13, 1920, in response to the petition of Bishop John Bernard McGinley.

The crowning itself occurred four years later, on September 20, 1924, led by the Apostolic Delegate, Archbishop Guglielmo Piani, at the Naga Cathedral grounds.
