Letran Bataan Holds “Lakbay Alay” 2016
Posted on March 30, 2016
In keeping with the penitential spirit of Lenten Season, around thirty employees composed of faculty and staff traveled to the nearby province Pampanga for the “Lakbay Alay,” a Visita Iglesia to some of its heritage churches, last March 12, 2016.
Seven magnificent, most-visited churches were chosen venues namely, San Agustin Church (Lubao), St. James Church (Betis), Immaculate Conception Church (Guagua), San Guillermo Church (Bacolor), The Cathedral (San Fernando), Holy Rosary Parish (Angeles) and Apu Mamacalulu Shrine (Angeles).
Visita Iglesia is one of the key observances of Filipinos during Lent. While the Lenten season is penitential in nature, the richness of our Catholic faith is elaborately and dramatically expressed therein.
Visita Iglesia is a form of sacrifice characterized by pilgrimage to holy places remembering the long journey of the Lord to Calvary. The “Via Crucis” (Way of the Cross) is prayed as pilgrims move about the sites.
“Lakbay Alay” is part of Colegio’s aim of advancing its personnel to the beauty of the faith. With assiduous prayer and joyful presence of one another, a deeper sense of piety is formed among Letran Employees.
