19 December 2009 – San Fabian. After almost seven months, and weekly visitation of the different barangays of San Fabian by the images of the Divine Mercy and the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Barangay Visitation ended today, 19 December 2009. The last barangay to hold the visitation was Barangay Nibaliw East.
On 12 December 2009, Saturday Nibaliw East held its farewell liturgy after welcoming the sacred images last 15 December 2009 from Nibaliw Center. The images stayed in the barangay hall since the barangay has no chapel yet. The residents held a procession around the barangay on 17 December 2009.
Barangy Nibaliw Center welcomed the sacred images from Nibaliw West. The images stayed in the barangay for four days and three nights before they were finally brought to Barangay Nibaliw East, the last barangay to hold the Visitation.
The farewell mass of the Visitation in Barangay NIbaliw was held on 19 December 2009. There were 50 children who received the Sacrament of Baptism. Fr. Oliver E. Mendoza celebrated the mass and the sacrament of baptism.
The images were then brought to the Parish Church from Nibaliw East. The procession carrying the images marked the end of the Barangay Visitation.
