We were visiting friends for the holiday so we made a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage. The image of our lady is a 17th century wooden statue from Mexico depicting the statue of the immaculate conception at Antipolo, province of Rizal.
One can reach the shrine through two routes: along the Cainta/Taytay route via Ortigas extension and the other through the Quezon City/Marikina via Sumulong Hiway.
The Statue is one of the most venerated images of the Blessed Virgin in our country attracting devotees from the Philippines and abroad. From Monday to Friday masses in the morning is every 30 minutes from 6:00 AM to 8:30 AM; in the evening 6:00 PM except on Wednesday when its at 6:30 PM.
A Catholic pilgrim earns partial or plenary indulgence with its completion, hearing mass and receiving communion, prayers for the intention of the pope and confession within 7 days before or after the pilgrimage.
At the bottom of the church along the M L Quezon Street to the right side is a pay parking lot. To the left side of the the church are food stalls were sweets, "suman" ( glutinous rice with coconut milk), "casoy" (cashew nuts), "matamis na bao" ( coconut jam), & "kalamay" ( coconut milk, brown sugar and sticky rice) are sold at reasonable prices.
If you are in the vicinity, the Shrine is worth a visit.
