Visita Iglesia 2017

Like in the past years, the Lenten Season again brought me around the city of Manila to visit 14 churches.  I didn’t deviate much from my Visita Iglesia last year, but I did it this year on a Good Friday.

Visita Iglesia 2016

Visiting multiple churches during Holy Week, also known as Visita Iglesia, had become a tradition of mine for the last few years and this year I had the chance to revisit some of the most beautiful and revered churches in the country.  Here are the 14 churches I had visited this Lenten season.

Lenten 2014: The Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes

For many people, the Holy Week means a lot of different things—from vacation to visiting churches.  While I don’t observe the holidays in the traditional manner, I still opt to keep away from merry socials.  This year though I did something different from past few year’s Visita Iglesia.

Bohol + Cebu (2014): A Glimpse of Sinulog

The low pressure area prevailing over the Visayas and Mindanao region had made the seas more wavy than the usual making our trip from Tagbilaran to Cebu much, much longer.  The rains had not stopped either, but our spirits weren’t dampen.

Bohol + Cebu (2014): The “Hungry Birds” of Tagbilaran

We left Panglao Island with smiles on our faces but deep inside us we wished we could stay much longer.  But time was not on our side and we’re off to Tagbilaran to catch our ferry back to Cebu.  Little that we know that the province still has one last pleasant surprise for us.

More on these birds later… 😀

Visita Iglesia 2013

Like many Filipinos, I commemorated this year’s Holy Week with a visit to various churches.  I realized that I wasn’t able to do this last year, so this year it’s a must that I outdo the shortcomings of the previous year.

Easter Photowalk

Belated happy Easter!  This year I wasn’t able to do any run during Holy Week, and I wasn’t able to do my Visita Iglesia, but this Easter after visiting a nearby church to give thanks, I had thought of doing a quick photowalk and perhaps see at least seven churches along the way.
