Maundy Thursday: Visit to Male Patron Saints

What does Maundy Thursday mean? According to wikipedia, Maundy comes from the latin word mandatum that mean “commandment”. In this Holy day, there are four events which are observed by some Filipino Christians and also other Christian people on earth. These are the washing of the Disciples’ Feet by Jesus Christ, the institution of the Mystery of the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper, the agony of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, and the betrayal of Christ by Judas Iscariot.

Canduman Parish Church

In addition, Filipinos are also known to have their Visita Iglesia or in English Church Visit and say some prayers or do the Stations of the Cross with one station in each church. Last year, my family went to Lapu-lapu City, visiting all Marian Patrons in that town. But this year, the group decided to go NORTH of cebu from Consolacion, Liloan and Danao and visit wll Male Patron Saints on those specific places or Parish.

Here are the list of Parishes and Churches we had visited last Mandy Thursday:

1. San Roque Church @ Yati Liloan, Cebu
2. San Fernando @ Liloan, Cebu
3. Senior Santiago Aposol del Compostel @ Compostela, Cebu
4. St. Francis De Assisi @ Danao City, Cebu
5. Sto Tomas de Villanueva Parish @ Danao City, Cebu
6. St. Anthony de Padua @ Foundation, Danao City, Cebu
7. St. Narciso parish Church @ Consolacion, Cebu

and a bonus/special visit at Canduman Parish Church with very cool and one of a kind display of our Holy Eucharist.

Have a blessed Maundy Thursday readers!
