Catholic Churches in Quezon City

Are you preparing to visit seven Catholic churches this Holy Week for the traditional Visita Iglesia (Church Visit)? If you are in Quezon City and you don’t have a list yet of churches to visit next week, you can check it here.

Although the churches are accessible by public transport you may still need to wear sigvaris compression stockings to protect you legs as you have to walk most of the time as part of your atonement.

The Shrine of the Divine Mercy, Marilao Bulacan

I haven’t gone to any churches for the traditional Visita Iglesia this Holy Week. However, I’m sharing some photos that I took during my son’s fieldtrip to the Shrine of the Divine Mercy in Marilao, Bulacan last year.

The Shrine is home to replicas of saints and pious people in the Catholic Religion. You can feel the sanctity of the place. Some parents or chaperon of kids got a few minutes to kneel and pray to the saints.

The Shrine is situated in a vast portion of land in Marilao, Bulacan. We haven’t really seen the whole place except the church area, so I can’t really tell if there is designated camping and picnic area that would allow visitors to cook.

If you are near the area, maybe you can include the Shrine of the Divine Mercy in your list of churches to visit this Lenten season.

Visita Iglesia Online

I haven’t tried visiting churches or the traditional Visita Iglesia during the Holy Week, so glad the Catholic Church particularly the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has put up an online site dedicated to people – who might not have a chance or the physical ability to leave their homes to visit different churches this lenten season.

There are at least 5 churches being featured by the site. You can check out the link within this post to begin your journey and reflections on the Stations of the Cross…
