The parish church of the Our Mother of Perpetual Help in Socorro, Surigao del Norte replaced its old wooden retablo with that of a concrete one this year.
The retablo was designed by Fr. Elmer J. Lendo, OSA, former Prior and Parish Priest of Socorro, and was partially ready last June 19 when the parish celebrated its annual fiesta.
As of writing, a crucifix will be placed at the central niche and below it will be the icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help made in Italy. Statues of Saints Monica and Augustine will also grace the other two smaller niches of the retablo.
