VISITA IGLESIA 2016 @ BACOLOD CITY

March 24, 2016 Maundy Thursday

We are now in Bacolod City and we are searching for churches to visit tonight. We got a list of parishes and of course, we might have to search  each through Waze... if they would reflect there!

Fortunately, Jaybee's friend from Bacolod City decided to show us the way. He never did a "Visita Iglesia" before and thought we were his angels for him to do this the first time. I personally think that he is actually our angel showing the road to the seven churches we intended to find. 

The Seven Churches Visitation also known as Visita Iglesia is an ancient pious Roman Catholic Lenten tradition to visit seven churches on the evening of Holy Thursday. On Maundy Thursday of Holy Week, following the Mass of the Lord's Supper, the Blessed Sacrament, is reserved on the Altar of Repose in the church for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. During the Seven Churches Visitation or Visita Iglesia, the faithful visit several churches – sometimes seven, sometimes fourteen, sometimes no set number depending upon the particular practice – to pray before the Blessed Sacrament in each church.
Church 1: Triumph of the Holy Cross
Burgos Extension, Barangay Estefania, Bacolod City

Church 2: St. Joseph the Workers Parish
Dona Juliana Heights, Bacolod City


Church 3: Holy Family Parish
Bacolod City



Church 4: San Antonio Abad Parish Church
General Lacson Street Extension, Bacolod City 


Church 5: Sacred Heart Diocesan Shrine
Lupit, Bacolod City 


Church 6: Oratory of St. Nicholas of Tolentine
University of Negros Occidental - Recoletos, Bacolod City

Church 7: Queen of Peace Parish Church
St. John Institute, Bacolod City

We thank you, Lord for giving us the opportunities for prayer even if we are away from our homeplace.
