Monasterio de Tarlac
Last year, we joined another pilgrimage in our church community. It was one of the far visita iglesia I have ever done but it was worth it as always. On the photo above, in Monasterio de Tarlac they have a replica of Rio's Christ Redeemer. No need to go far to have a photo like that one, just visit Tarlac.
Inside Monasterio de Tarlac, I am not sure if it is a chapel.
The view is breathtaking. =) Nature is LOVE.

Our next stop, Our Lady of Manaog Church in Pangasinan
Candles - as much as possible we light candles in every church
Our Lady of Manaog
It is open to public to touch or to hold the statue of Our Lady of Manaog. Everyone can have moment with it. Knee and touch and pray for your intentions.

Inside the church
San Pedro y San Pedro Church - Calasiao, Pangasinan
I don't have a photo inside the church. I think we were on a hurry during those time.
St. John The Evangelist Cathedral - Dagupan, Pangasinan
Inside the church - this the last stop for our station of the cross and we attended a mass.
It is a nice experience going to the different churches for station of the cross with our community or with our family. It feels like a renewal of faith. Getting to know yourself and a spiritual journey towards God. It feels good to know and to talk to people with their stories on how they are very thankful with God and how they have changed because of their faith. This holy week start your own tradition with your family by going to different churches and pray the station of the cross. As what they say, the family that prays together stays together. A little advise, don't forget to bring bottles of cold water, food and a few prayer books during the trip. Another one, plan it ahead of time.
