Our country is facing a pandemic called Covid-19 so I decide to prepare a virtual Visita Iglesia for our family. Growing up, we would always go visit several churches. This is by far the most intimate Holy week celebration that our family will observe.
Here are the links to Virtual tours that you and your family can go on Maundy Thursday.
Sagrada De Familia
A giant Basilica that has been under construction since 1882.
St Peter’s Basilica
This is where St Peter is buried. This church is in Vatican.
The Duomo di Milano is a Catholic church in Milan, Italy, and holds the title of second-largest cathedral in the world.
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre
This is where the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Jesus took place.
Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem
The birth place of Jesus
Churches in the Philippines
Featuring 12 churches in the Philippines, this link has the readings already so this is best for those who doesn’t want to DIY or doesn’t have the gospel readings.
Or you can also go back to the actual places where everything happened.
