Online Visita Iglesia

Lenten Season is a time for remembering Christ's passion, death and resurrection. During Holy Week, most Filipino Catholics devote their time in remembering Christ's suffering by engaging in liturgical activities. One of the which is the Visita Iglesia. For the OFWs and those who cannot leave home to do Visita Iglesia, the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines relaunched its Online Visita Iglesia. They have upgraded their server to avoid it from crashing as what happened last year when the site was visited by 43,000 users. This year, the site can accommodate even twice as much.

You can choose between Stations of the Cross (old version) or Way of the Cross (new version). The Stations of the Cross presents a slide show of seven churches in Metro Manila including the Manila Cathedral Basilica, San Agustin Church, Minor Basilica of Black Nazarene, San Lorenzo Ruiz Church, Sta. Cruz Church, Nuestra Señora de Remedios and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Shrine. The Way of the Cross presents a slide show of seven churches in nearby provinces including the St. Martin Lawrence, Martyr Church (Balagtas, Bulacan), Nuestra Señora dela Asuncion (Bulakan, Bulacan), Saint Ildefonsus, Archbishop of Toledo Parish (Guiguinto, Bulacan), Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish (Barasoain, Malolos, Bulacan), Our Lady of Purification Parish (Binmaley, Pangasinan), Our Lady of the Holy Rosary (Manaoag, Pangasinan) and Sta. Catalina de Alejandria Parish (Porac, Pampanga). Some traditional lenten practices such as the Seven Last Words and Pasyon are also available.

This is our time to remember Christ's sacrifice for us. In our own little ways, we can share in his sufferings.
