In grateful thanksgiving to the City of San Fernando and Province of La Union, we have personally commissioned the 25 foot statue of Christ the Redeemer at Reservoir Hill, overlooking the city proper and San Fernando Bay.

This was inspired by former Undersecretary Jose “Peping” Mabanta whose wife Belle, is first cousin on the Campos side.  He invited us to see the statue of Christ the Redeemer that he put up in his retirement home in Pililla, Rizal, similar to that in Brazil. I thought it would be good to have similar statue at Bacsil Ridge. Again Peping suggested that we put it up near the city proper. When Mr. Juan Go heard about this, he offered his lot for free. We are thankful that Mr. Juan Go and family donated the 100 sq. meter area on which the statue stands. We have a common dream, a dream of leaving a landmark that would express our gratitude for the love and support from our community.

We give the statue with the hope that we will be reminded to pray for our city and our province so that its residents and visitors will be kept safe from harm. May His outstretched arms radiate His Blessings into our homes. May His open heart pour His unconditional love into the hearts of each one of us. As we look up into the sky to reach for Him, may His overwhelming presence infuse in us the gratitude for the life that we now enjoy.
