Ultimate Travel Guide to KAMAY NI HESUS HEALING SHRINE for First-time Travelers

If you are looking for an ideal day trip destination from Manila, check out the town of Lucban in Quezon Province. This town has a lot of beautiful spots to visit, nice resorts and a must-visit pilgrimage site.

It was my fourth time visiting the Kamay ni Hesus Shrine, in fact, I climbed the 305 steps grotto to see the 50-foot statue of the Ascending Christ up close several times already.

After our lunch at Patio Rizal Hotel and Restaurant and a short visit at Buddy’s Commissary, we visited Kamay ni Hesus Shrine in Lucban Quezon.

Together with PHILTOA Southern Luzon FAMTOUR participants, we attended an afternoon mass at Kamay ni Hesus Healing Chapel before heading to our next destination.

Lucban Quezon is not just known for Pahiyas, Pancit Habhab, and Longanisa, It’s now getting more popular as a pilgrimage site. Since the majority of Filipinos are Catholic, this shrine can easily attract visitors to visit Lucban not just for food and colorful festivals but to repent, give thanks and pray for healing at Kamay ni Hesus Shrine said Rebecca V. Labit – Regional Director Department of Tourism – Region IV.

Kamay ni Hesus Shrine and Healing Center was constructed in February 2002 with the help of Quezonians and other Filipino Donors from various communities in the United States. With the help of some local donors, Father Joey Faller even shared the money he inherited from the family heirloom to financially sustain the construction of the Healing Center.
