Manaoag is known as a pilgrimage site to Catholics. It is home to Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag.
Last September 9, M.O.M visited the Manaoag Shrine, in time for the celebration of Mama Mary’s birthday. It was my second time to pray to Nuestra Senora de Manaoag, the first time was in January 2011.
It was Sunday when we visited, there were many pilgrims and locals who attended the mass.
I brought with me the white rosary I received from a friend who visited Manaoag, four years ago.
To complete my visit, I bought 10 candles, have them blessed and offered prayer in behalf of my family and relatives.
To those who would like to pray and visit Manaoag Basilica, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag will be on October 7, 2012. Novena Masses will start on September 28 from 5:00 a.m to 12:00 p.m.
From Manila, it will take 4 hours drive to reach Manaoag, Pangasinan or you can commute through Dagupan Bus Transit and Victory Liner.
