Seven Catholic Churches in Marikina You Can Visit Online For Your Virtual Visita Iglesia

In the Philippines, Visita Iglesia is observed every Maundy Thursday or Good Friday where Catholics visit at least seven churches and recite the Stations of the Cross.

Unfortunately, with quarantine, curfews, and social distancing measures in effect due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, both parishes and devotees are faced with the challenge of observing this tradition.

Luckily, parishes have embraced technology as a means to reach out to the community.

Thanks to social media platforms, churches have adapted to what is part of the new norm and provide parish updates, scripture readings, and inspirational messages on their official Facebook pages. Some parishes also offer masses virtually via livestream. For those who wish to continue the tradition, a virtual Visita Iglesia is possible regardless of location.

For those who live outside Marikina City, including Overseas Filipino Workers and residents outside the Philippines, this is a perfect chance to hear mass online and revisit their previous parishes when they used to live in Marikina City.

Here are seven Catholic churches in Marikina City that you can visit for your virtual Visita Iglesia.

1. St Paul of the Cross (SSS Village)


2. Immaculate Concepcion Church (Bayan-bayanan Ave.Concepcion Uno)


3. Our Lady of The Abandoned Church (J. P. Rizal St. corner V. Gomez St., Sta. Elena)


4. Jesus dela Pena (Bonifacio Avenue, Jesus Dela Peña)


5. San Jose Manggagawa Parish (2 A. Bonifacio Ave, Marikina City)

6. Nativity of Our Lady Parish (Major Dizon Street, Industrial Valley Complex)


7. St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows Parish (East Dr, Marikina City)
