Last Year we went on a Batangas Visita Iglesia. For this year we decided to do a Visita Iglesia near our Home, Manila, Makati and Mandaluyong.
We left the house at 9AM. Our first Stop was the “twin Churches.” The Archdiocesan Shrone of Our Lady or Loreto and the Saint Anthony Church in Bustillos. Since there are already two Churches in the same Area this would be our First and Second Stop.
After the First and Second Stop it was now to the 3rd Stop, The Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene or the Quiapo Church. After the Quiapo Church it was now to the Archdiocesan Shrine of Nuestra Señora de Guia or the Ermita Church (Our 4th Stop) in MH Del Pilar in Ermita. After that we proceeded to the Our Lady of Remedies Church (5th Stop) in MH Del Pilar in Malate. This Church is more commonly known as the Malate Church.
After the Malate Church we proceeded to our 6th Stop, the San Vicente de Paul Church located in San Marcelino. It was then to our 7th Stop which was the Saint Pancratius Chapel inside Paco Park (Cemetery). This was the only Closed Church we went to. This was also my first time in Paco Park and I was amazed at how well maintained it was. There is an entrance Fee of P5.00 to get inside. You will get to see where Jose Rizal was buried temporarily here, the remains of the 3 Martyred Priests, Gomez, Burgos and Zamora are also buried in Paco Park.
Our 8th Stop was the San Antonio de Padua Church in Singalong. After the 8th Stop we proceeded to our 9th Stop which was the Our Lady of La Paz Church in Makati. We then proceeded to our 10th Stop which was the Shrine of the Sacred Heart located at Sacred Heart Street in Makati (Kamagong – Da0).
Before going to our 11th Stop we had lunch at Bacolod Chicken House (Near Shopwise).
After Lunch we proceeded to our 11th Stop, the Nuestra Señora de Gracia Church in Bernardino Street, Makati. Our 12th Stop was the National Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Orense Street, Makati.
After Makati we went to Mandaluyong to visit the 13th and 14th Stop. The Archdiocesan Shrine of the Divine Mercy (13th) located in Maysilo Circle (City Hall) and the San Felipe Parish Church (14th).
Our last and final stop (15th) was the Our Lady of the Abandoned Church in Santa Ana, Manila. We got home around 2 PM.
