Kamay ni Hesus Shrine and Healing Center is a must-visit in Lucban, Quezon! As one of the popular pilgrimage destinations in Luzon, the province of Quezon is home to Mt. Bahanaw, considered as a holy ground among its "namamanata". It is frequented by faith healers and certain sects that believe in the power that the mountain gives them. Also, in Lucban, you'll find "Kamay ni Hesus" which is a 5-hectare shrine featuring a church where healing masses are celebrated by the known healing priest Rev. Fr. Joseph Ayala Faller.
Kamay ni Hesus Shrine in Lucban QuezonKamay ni Hesus is located at Brgy. Tinamnan, Lucban, Quezon; healing masses are held every Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9:30 in the morning at the shrine's chapel.
For me, it is also a huge outdoor museum with religious life-size replicas of characters and scenes from the holy bible such as Adam and Eve, The Last Supper, Garden of Eden, Pieta, Noah's Ark, among others.
One activity that shouldn't be missed in Kamay ni Hesus is climbing the 290 ++ steps going to the top of the hill where a 50-foot statue of the Ascending Christ was built. The statue, which can be seen miles away is considered to be one of the tallest in the Philippines.
Along the way, you see life size statues depicting the 14 Stations of the Cross. Kamay ni Hesus is a great venue to do your Lenten station of the cross during holy week.
We were so tired upon reaching the top of the hill. But we were greeted with an amazing view of the town of Lucban. Ang ganda!!!
Aside from the annual Pahiyas Festival, Kamay ni Hesus Shrine has also become one of the popular tourist spots and attractions in Lucban, Quezon. This is a must-visit place in Quezon province during Holy Week.
Always remember that this is a religious place and not Luneta or Mall of Asia, so... :D
