Palm Sunday marks the start of the Holy Week. It’s a time to reflect and repent for Roman Catholics. For those who want to go on a pilgrimage without hurting the pocket, you don’t need to fly out of the country. It only cost me Php 500.00.
In Iloilo, you can marvel at the architecture wonders and at the same time take a spiritual journey.
Here are list of Iloilo Churches that you can visit during Holy Week:
- San Joaquin Church
- Miag-ao Church or the Sto. Tomas de Villanueva Church
- St. Nicholas of Tolentino Parish in Guimbal
- St. John of Sahagun in Tigbauan
- Sto. Nino de Arevalo
- Sta. Ana Parish in Molo
- Our Lady of Candles in Jaro (Jaro Cathedral)
If you’re in a group, then better to hire a van to visit these churches. But if you’re traveling alone or with just a companion, then it’s better to ride local transport.
