We wanted our Tagaytay Trip, which coincidentally was our family get-together day, to be extra special. Hence, we planned to include visiting a nearby church in our agenda, and upon studying the locations and proximity of our to-visit places, we identified the Our Lady of Lourdes Church to be the ideal church to visit.

The photo above shows how the church looks like, and I think you'll agree with me that it looks really wonderful! Come on! Let's explore the place a little more!

The Place
If you happen to be not religious or Christian for that matter, you may still appreciate the place because of the serene environment. Also, it's a good place for meditation or reflection.

I took a photo of the mass schedules just in case you want to hear a mass.

Here in this place, you will also see a Mama Mary statue. As you may know, Lourdes is a place in France (thank you for correcting this one, Marie) where some children witnessed the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary, so it's significant to this parish.

The Candle Chapel
One of the things I really appreciated in this place was the Candle Chapel which is a "shrine" for prayers and wishes.

Once I went inside, I immediately felt the solemnity of the chapel. Hence, I offered my prayers and lit some candles, which by the way are color coded depending on your prayer intentions.

The candles are for P5.00 each (but you pay on a honesty basis). Don't worry, the proceeds all go to the scholars of the parish. Light all the colors of the candles if you want, you are hitting two birds with one stone. The first one is helping the youth gain more knowledge, and the second one is praying for your dreams and other intentions.

Now, let's get a view of the church itself, but before that let me share this photo of me with the image of Jesus:

I really felt a wave of positive aura when I visited the church (perhaps because it was my first time there). Hence, I prayed for a wish. I don't know if you've heard it before, but a lot of people say that you can make a wish if it's your first time to visit a church. I don't believe in superstitions, but there's no harm in praying for a wish, right? 

Alright, now that I've stalled too much already, let me show you the interior of the church:

I know it looks simple, but I think it was that simplicity that made me really appreciate the church.
Trivia: A lot of couples choose this as their wedding church, you may want to have your here in the future.

  1. Hi there! May I just correct what you wrote that Lourdes is one of the children who saw Mama Mary. From what I know, Lourdes is a town in France where the apparition of our Lady took place. Thank you and keep the posts coming!

  2. Wow! I can't believe I remembered it wrongly. Haha! Thank you so much for pointing that one! I did a little search and you are right! Lourdes is a place in Southern France where the Virgin Mary appeared. :)
