Church Hopping

The title sounds fun right? Actually, it is called Visita Iglesia. I’ve been doing it in 5 years. I started it last 2010 with my friends in preparation for our CPA Board Exam.

For 2 consecutive birthdays, I’ve done a series from Manila to Quezon city trailing the MRT Line 2. It begins in U-Belt in Manila and would end up in Katipunan, QC.

St. Francis Chapel (Mandaluyong)
St. Anthony Parish (Bustillos) which celebrates my birthday(hehe) It’s a feast day actually.

St. Jude (U-belt) / where we spent most of our Thursdays when we were at the review
St. Therese of the Child Jesus (Broadway)
St. Therese Chapel
Mt. Carmel Parish (where I like to stay most)
A wedding was due that day (Mt. Carmel Parish)
Mt Carmel’s Glass Window
A Parish in Katipunan where you can offer eggs and donate your pencils after the board exam.
Sta. Clara Parish


It is also by this doing that I did my solo out-of-town trip. I went to Lucban Quezon.

the Chapel at Kamay ni Hesus (Lucban, Quezon)
And also recently to Manaoag, Pangasinan
Our Lady of Manaoag Shrine


Colorful Candles, Happy Life!

The experience was so rejuvenating that aside from detoxification from urban air, I also acquired spiritual purity and restrengthened my faith.

Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage (Antipolo)
Boso-boso church (Antipolo) / Along with a friend, I was surprised how far we went just to see it.

I do side trips once in a while like tasting local food, talking to strangers, and a photography habit.


If in Europe they enjoy museums, well I suggest for this country with rich religious culture, visit our churches and shrines. They are worth seeing and may be you’ll have an answered prayer (that I believe.:) ).

NEXT STOP..Tungko Church! Who doesn’t like castles?
