  • When you will ride a bus or private vehicle towards our hometown from Cebu City or vice versa, you can see the shrine above the mountain, especially when it's daytime, you can see Mother Mary with her arms wide-stretched open

      There are so many beautiful spots or places that we want to visit. And if we already went there, we want to go back just to embrace the beauty on that place again. One of the beautiful places in my hometown, Bogo City, north of Cebu province, there is a beautiful spot that I cannot forget. It’s called the Shrine of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal. It is just beside the highway. When you will ride a bus or private vehicle towards our hometown from Cebu City or vice versa, you can see the shrine above the mountain, especially when it’s daytime,

      you can see Mother Mary with her arms wide-stretched open.

      There are two ways in order to get to the Shrine: either by tricycle or private vehicle, driving through a rocky road, or by feet, climbing up the stairs. But if you ask me, it will be better if you climb on foot, it will be like a sacrifice for our Mother and at the same time, walking exercise. If you want to climb up using the stairs, you will go through 163 steps first before you reach and see the Shrine and image of Mother Mary. You will find it tiring but ...


      • in the end, when you have already arrived at the top of the mountain, at the Shrine, you will find the place beautiful. You can see the overlooking mountains and greenery spots. It has beautiful scenery and you can feel the wind touching your face and body. This is a very good place for reflection.

        The Shrine is also the place where the Children of Mary (COM) pilgrimage will be going to held because of the ambiance of the place. Most of those who will participate in this kind of events are students in secondary level. There will also be teachers and nuns

        who will act as moderators or guardians of these students. During birthdays of Mother Mary, which will be celebrated every year, there is a procession from the San Vicente Parish, Bogo’s Church, to the Shrine, which will start at dawn and ends until morning, just about for the sun to rise. If people are already arrived at the Shrine, there will be a mass that will be conducted there. There will also be medals that were sold by vendors and blessed by the priest himself.

        All in all, the Shrine of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal is a very good place for meditation and reflection.
