Visita Iglesia 2013

For almost 9 years that I’ve been in Manila, this is the first time that I was able to do Visita Iglesia. I was not able to do it in the previous years because of work, other times I went back home to Bacolod for the Holy Week.

My sisters Jecel, Marshall, my tita & I went on the journey last Holy Thursday. Funny, we don’t know what churches to go to. After having the list of the churches, we don’t exactly know how to go there using public transpo. Then the adventure begins.. hahaha.

We visited the following churches:

It was a nice feeling seeing these different churches and admiring their intricate altar designs. Appreciating the House of God. Hope that this Holy Week we were able to internalize what we have, what we wish and prayed for and be thankful for all the things that happened to us.
