LA VIRGEN MILAGROSA DE BADOC. The province of Ilocos Norte celebrated the 1st Pontifical Coronation Anniversary of its patron saint, La Virgen Milagrosa de Badoc, on May 31, 2019, with a fluvial parade highlighting the last of the nine-day novena in honor of the provincial patroness. The images of La Milagrosa (above) and Sto. Cristo Milagroso de Sinait were paraded in the waters of Badoc, reenacting their historic arrival in the province. Both icons are said to have arrived floating in a box between the shores of Brgy. Paguetpet in Badoc, Ilocos Norte and Brgy. Dadalaquiten, Sinait, Ilocos Sur. (photo by PGIN-CMO)
