The Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel:
About the Shrine: A Royal Decree Promulgated on November 20,1896 established the Alava as a Parish belonging to the Diocese of Nueva Segovia. In 1918 the town was Renamed to SISON in honor of the late Senator Pedro Ma. Sison.
In 1928 the Parish was Incorporated into the Diocese of Lingayen-Pangasinan. In commemoration of the 15th Centenary Anniversary of the Council of Ephesus, the Parish was consecrated under the special patronage of “La Reina Del Monte Carmelo” (Our Lady of Mount Carmel). The Parish formed part of the newly established Diocese of Urdaneta in 1985.
On November 20,1996 or 100 Years after the Establishment of the Parish, the Parish was elevated to its new status as the SHRINE OF OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL
My Thoughts on the Church: The Town of Sison is Often Bypassed when going to Baguio. And a lot do not know that the town boasts of a Beautiful Church with a most special status, a Shrine to Our Lady of Mount Carmel. I hope more People will Visit the Shrine and support it. A Gem among Pangasinan’s many beautiful Churches.
