Time flies so fast and before I knew it, its Holy Week again. If last year we went out of the country, this time we didn’t make any plans so we just looked for a place to go. Somewhere we can look back, repent, and pray.
Kamay ni Hesus Shrine and Healing Center is situated at Barangay Tinamnan, Lucban, Quezon. It is said to be one of the popular pilgrimage destination in Luzon because it is near Mt. Banahaw which is considered a holy ground.
How to get here:
- From a bus terminal, take a bus bound to Lucena.
- Alight at Lucena Grand Central Terminal.
- At Lucena Grand Central Terminal, transfer to a jeepney bound to Lucban.
- Advise the driver that you are going to Kamay ni Hesus. You can easily spot the place as many passengers drop off here.
*If you’re bringing your own transportation just follow the road going to Lucban, Quezon and signs leading to Kamay ni Hesus Shrine and Healing Center. And don’t forget to ask someone if you think you are lost. 🙂
We didn’t know that their tradition every Easter was to throw water to those who passes by. Glad we brought a car or else we will get wet!
