The ‘WALK” was started by Fr. Jerry Orbos, SVD and Manong Sonny Sison of Urdaneta City on October 7, 1989.

It is 30 years old and 60 walks today.

From only a handful then, it has attracted hundreds who join the 13 km devotional pilgrimage on foot starting at 5 in the morning from the Urdaneta Cathedral to the Shrine of our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag every first Saturday of May and October. Marian devotees comprise the bulk of the Walk with God participants who come from the different parts of the Philippines.

The XVD Association has become a regular participant in this bi-annual religious activity since it first joined in the mid-90s, providing the vehicle for Mama Mary and the sound system during the 3 hour walk.
