uSt. Peter of Alcantara Parish Church or the Pakil Church was one of the 7 churches in Laguna we visited on April 1, 2017. Midway to Tavera Street, where the church can be found at the very end, our bus couldn’t move anymore. There were several buses of devotees who were there already.
We went on foot and when we enter the church, I was surprise at how huge it was. Hundreds of people were milling around.
Everytime we get to the church, we make it a point to huddle and discuss about the significance of the church.
We proceeded to the famous Chapel of Our Lady of Turumba. It was said that many people found their one true love here. It holds a separate mass from the main church.
There was a guy who tells stories about the Our Lady of Turumba.
The rest of the church is well-preserved and the exterior is so intricately beautiful.
Don’t go there using a bus. It is probably through the graces of St. Peter and the Lady of Turumba that we got out there safely. Plus, it pays that we had an expert driver.
This is one of the most unforgettable churches I have ever been.
