The Monastery of the Holy Eucharist is a church in Sibonga for the Marian devotees. The church is very popular among believers not only because it is considered the home of the image of the miraculous Virgin but also because the place is truly amazing and stunning. The Monastery is the place where the ‘Mga Monghe ni Maria'[Monks of Mary] live.
Below are the photos of the church. Also check out Satchmo‘s gallery. He decided to tag along today.
