Baclaran

I didnt get to take pictures of the church inside because it was rude to take pictures while they were praying.. well, thats what my brother said.

Anyhoo, i copied this from wikipedia:

The National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, also called the Redemptorist church and popularly known as the Baclaran church, is a Roman Catholic parish church under the vicariate of the parish of Santa Rita de Cascia in the Diocese of Parañaque. The edifice is on Roxas Boulevard in the barangay of Baclaran in Parañaque City, Metro Manila. It is one of the most widely known churches in Metro Manila, and devotees from many parts of the region and the other parts of the country regularly flock to the sanctuary every Wednesday in what has become known as Baclaran Day.

The church is home to the replica of the miraculous icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, the object of the popular devotion. The building has a seating capacity of 2,000, but as many as 11,000 people can be inside during masses. There are an estimated 120,000 devotees affiliated with the church. The parish celebrates its fiesta on June 27, the feast day of Our Mother of Perpetual Help.

We took a tricycle, LRT, jeepney and by foot to get to the Baclaran church. I REEEAAAALLLYYY thought Baclaran was far because heading back to malate, it probably took us like, about 30 minutes by taxi and it cost us the same amount of money of taking the tricycle, LRT and jeepney. its more tiring lah the journey to go there because we had to walk again kan. going back was easy peasy hehe. the taxi was just outside the shopping mall.

Here are pictures of the day we went to Baclaran.
