Featuring seven churches in Laguna, Tagaytay, and Batangas as part of sacred vows that Filipino Catholics make during Holy Week.
Every year, during Holy Thursday and Good Friday, it has been part of our panata (sacred vows) to make a Visita Iglesia or visiting at least seven different churches as a reference to the Seven Last Words of Jesus. As Catholics, we firmly believe that our prayers will be granted after the stations are completed.
However, since we are still in the midst of the pandemic and for safety, we may not fulfill physically the tradition, but still keeping it alive through virtual and online masses by various churches.
At home, we can still say our prayers or say the Rosary, watch, and listen to the Holy masses through live streaming.
