The National Shrine of La Virgen Divina Pastora  known canonically as the Three Kings Parish, is a shrine in Gapan City in the Philippines that was founded in 1589. It is one of the oldest Roman Catholic churches in the Philippines, and the oldest and the biggest colonial church in Nueva Ecija. The church has been a pilgrimage site for two patron saints of Gapan and also of Nueva Ecija.

The Three Kings, and the Divina Pastora (Divine Shepherdess). In April 26, 1986, the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines declared the church as a National Shrine.

 

Santacruzan is a religious-historical beauty pageant held in many cities, towns, and even in small communities throughout the Philippines during the month of May. Originally celebrated on the last day of a Flores De Mayo celebration in honor of the Virgin Mary.​ It honors the finding of the Holy Cross by Helena of Constantinople (known as Reyna Elena) and Constantine the Great.
