St. Pedro Calungsod, the Young Martyr that Filipinos will bring to Rio

On the occasion of the 28th World Youth Day, to be held this year in Rio de Janeiro, 38 pilgrims will depart from the Philippines to tell the world the story of St. Pedro Calungsod, the 18 year-old missionary martyr beatified by John Paul II in 2000 and canonized by Benedict XVI in 2012.

The initiative, sponsored by Marlito Cabigas, head of the Cebu Youth Commission, has been made possible thanks to support from local archdiocese. Visit this article to read more about the life of St. Pedro Calungsod.
