2 May 2009 – San Fabian. The parish has started its Barangay Formation Program in Barangay Bolaoen. The statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the image of the Divine Mercy were brought to Brgy. Bolaoen from the parish church. They were transported by truck. The truck was owned by Bro. Bernie Solis.
The images were accompanied by Fr. Oliver E. Mendoza, the parish priest, with Bro. Randolp Romero, a seminarian from San Fabian studying at the Immaculate Conception School of Theology, Vigan City, and some parishioners. They were met by the people of Brgy. Bolaoen at the foot of the hanging bridge connecting Brgy. Bolaoen with Sison, Pangasinan.
Since the hanging bridge was not wide enough, the residents of Bolaoen brought the image of the BVM by a bamboo raft, and was brought to the Bolaoen-side just before the mini-dam of the barangay. From there, the people had a procession while singing Marian songs. The people prayed the holy rosary and the chaplet of the Divine Mercy in the chapel.
