This year 2021 the Catholics in the Philippines are celebrating the 500 Years of Christianity. The CBCP dedicated this year 2021 as the Year of “Missio ad Gentes”, the Latin for “mission to the nations”. We have decided to visit a church here in Metro Manila as our way to celebrate the gift of the Christian faith.

We created a map on the historic and beautiful churches that we have visited. This may be helpful guide for your future Visita Iglesia activity.
