M.O.M Goes to Manaoag

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.

  1. The Our Lady of Manaoag Shrine was the last place we visited before the untimely demise of my FIL, that’s why this place is very memorable to us.

  2. My grandma in my father side is a devotee of the lady of Manaoag . Everytime she visit her home( which is in Pangasinan) she always visits the place.

  3. I was just reading a post about the San Sebastian church as a historical landmark and the possibility for it to be included as a world heritage site. The church of Manaog has been a favorite stopovers of tourists visiting the summer city of Baguio and I think this one deserves its own list of accolades.

  4. I’ve never been there actually, only just passed-by. Hopefully our next trip will be headed there.

  5. Our family has been visiting the Manaoag shrine for years now. We wouldn’t miss a year without going to this place. The feeling while praying there is really uplifting! However, distance really puts a strain in the body, but being there, it seems that the aura is replenishing my energy! 😀

  6. I didn’t know it’s a quick trip going to Manaoag from Manila… I may have gone here already if this is the case… memory gap! Yikes!
