Cavite Churches


Visita Iglesia is a Holy Week practice where devotees visit and pray in at least 7 churches. It was introduced on 1560's to the Philippines by Augustinian missioners. It is done usually on Maundy Thursday, or it can take days until before Easter Sunday if churches are far apart.

The purpose of this Holy Week practice was to honor the Blessed Sacrament, when Jesus established the Sacrament of the Eucharist however the past years it turned into a form of pilgrimage and meditation for the Holy Week, and also a form of seeking penance for sins. Superstition even has it that wishes would be granted upon completion of a Visita Iglesia. Stations of the Cross may also be held during church visits. Devotees either visit 14 churches for each of the 14 Stations of the Cross, or pray two stations in each of the 7 churches.
