Every year we visit this church then afterwards go to my lola in Asingan, Pangasinan for her birthday. This year we visited early due to a business transaction in Dagupan and San Fabian. However, this year I was shocked that they no longer allow vehicles to park, only those that are for blessing. My visit to Manaoag is not only spiritual but gastronomical as well. I frequent the stalls that sells sotanghon and munching putong calasiao with the soup. For pasalubong, I look for fruits in season (chico if.possible and guava) and patupat, not so much on tupig because I have a suki in Asingan that I pre order days before.

Worth the long drive for a lifetime of peace of mind. This is where I vow to go annually from now on. Best to go on a weekday.

When we knew we had to go home to La Union to settle a few things, we immediately thought of dropping by Manaoag Church. A few meters going to the church, we have already noticed cars in queue and people walking towards the church to attend mass .This scene has seem to be ubiquitous in every church every Sunday.. We continued to brave the crowd and spent a few minutes searching for a parking space. we attended the last mass schedule (5:00pm) so getting in and finding a seat was easy for us..

Like the other tourists, Our Lady of Manaoag church is one of the spots we would always want to visit when we go to Pangasinan as it is known for being miraculous.. For the same reason, we were here to offer our thanksgiving prayer, prayer for healing, for the souls of our departed and to ask to continue to bless our family..

A statue of Our Lady of Manaoag located at the back of the church is a replica of the shrine. In Front of the shrine's replica is a tub-like shape where you could light a small colorful candle and have it float while offering a prayer..The visit will not be complete without lighting candles.. We bought the red ones which they say are wish candles.. Each of us offered our prayers and wishes.. "The candle symbolizes light in the darkness of life especially individual life, illlumination; it is the symbol of holy illumination of the spirit of truth. Lit in times of death, they signify the light in the next world, and they represent Christ as the light"..

The walk ways were also covered.. and there were benches all over the place where you could sit and listen to father's homily that resonates from inside..

You would find the altar inside where the shrine sits. They say that the image of Our Lady of Manaoag is made of Ivory, her crown, scepter and dress are considered priceless because of the golden jewels around..Hence the news of multiple unsuccesful burglar attempts in the past. You would see the shrine covered now with they say a bulletproof glass and altar is situated really high to ensure security.

It was my first time to visit here. It was truly a meaningful and blessed experience. 128522

How we got here: We rode a bus in Cubao going to Manaoag. Bus fare was 314 pesos. It took us more thab 4 hours to get there since I think the bus did not take the TPLEX. But going back, it only took us less than 4 hours via TPLEX. Easy 128076

Tip: Don't forget to buy Tupig! I always buy this filipino delicacy every time I get a chance to visit Pangasinan. It's my fave. 🙂

It's only 10 days left before the board exam.
Please say a little prayer for me and for all those who are taking the Chemical Engineering Licensure exam this November. Thanks everyone! It would mean a lot!128591

We like visiting different churches to admire the architecture and of course offer prayers. Since it was all going to be our first time at manaoag, we decided to pass by before heading up to Baguio.
Honestly, I really did not enjoy my experience. We've been to many other churches all over Luzon and it was never like this. Going there a kid selling candles (whom I thought was helpful) guided us through this eskinita kse doon daw ang parking. Grabe vendors vendors everywhere! And the type na in your face, na guilty ka kung d ka bibili. After parking I tried handing the kid twenty bucks, ayaw tanga pin. I need to buy all his candles daw. I asked how much, 150 daw kse 10 candles! Whattt?!!
We had to walk through like a mini market. Parang I know Bakit nagalit si Jesus sa temple, ganun.
The facade of the church was actually nice but nothing great inside. They installed huge fans which ruined the ceiling aesthetic imo. AND people can just walk in and out during the mass.
The shrine is at the back. Again, huge selling area for candles. Lots of people. Saw that there was Parking pala on that side, grr. Mejo kulob where the offered candles are so if you're asthmatic, stay away.
Pretty sad that I didn't enjoy my experience 128532
