Every year, we observe Holy Week Catholic activities beginning Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday and also Maundy Thursday Visita Iglesia. I even wrote about our Visita Iglesia route in Quezon City last year. This year, hubby and I decided to do it in Manila, WALKING. I doubted myself at first if I could survive the walking to and from one church to another. But I said, as part of our penitence this Holy Week, I will do it, I can do it. Lo and behold, here's our Visita Iglesia route in Manila.
San Beda Church (Our Lady of Montserrat)
One of our family's favorite churches is this quiet church along Mendiola Street near Malacañang Palace. Attending mass here on Sundays has always been very solemn and peaceful, away from the busyness of the city.
Just a few steps from San Beda, entering the gates of Malacañang Palace, is St. Jude. It's where devotees visit the patron saint of the impossible visit every Thursday to complete their nine-day novena.
