The New Chapel of Caleruega

31 Dec

Some Catholic brides want a garden wedding. But since the Catholic Church does not allow weddings to be celebrated outside a Catholic church, the Dominicans did a great job by building a chapel with a garden wedding feel to it.

Caleruega now has an ADDITIONAL chapel. This one is at the picnic grounds.

I’m not really sure if weddings can be held here. Better contact Caleruega’s office for more information.

Sunday Mass Schedule at Caleruega – Chapel of Transfiguration

20 Feb

I had a hard time googling for the Mass sched at Caleruega so I thought of posting it on my blog.

 

Caleruega's Transfiguration Chapel

Caleruega’s Sunday Mass is at 11AM. And if you’re planning to visit the place, Caleruega closes at 5:30pm.

Hope I was able to help! 🙂

NOTE: The sched may change without prior notice

Caleruega Date on Valentine’s Day

19 Feb

My boyfriend and I went to Tagaytay last Sunday (Valentine’s Day) with my 2 friends. Yeah, it was pretty much a double date. 🙂

Surprisingly, there was no heavy traffic on our way to Tagaytay and going home to Manila. I guess, people did not want to brave the traffic on Valentine’s Day.

Anyhow, as soon as we reached Tagaytay, we went to Leslie’s Tagaytay (across Magallanes Square) to have lunch. After eating, we went to Caleruega in Nasugbu, Batangas. The first time I saw Caleruega (retreat during my senior year in UST), I instantly fell in love with the place.

When we got to the chapel last Sunday, there was a wedding going on. Wow! A Valentine wedding. Hehehe… My boyfriend also fell in love with Caleruega. He said the view from the top was breathtaking. He really likes nature. And while taking pictures of the chapel, he told me, “Honey, I want us to get married here.” What?!?! Caleruega chapel is very charming, but it is too far. Our families and friends might have a hard time going to the Chapel of Transfiguration. Wedding suppliers also have out-of-town charges. Besides, I like San Agustin Church in Intramuros more. 😛

Since we were sssooo late for the mass at Caleruega, we heard Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish at 6:30pm. We ate fishballs after the Mass and my friend introduced us to the parish priest of Lourdes. Fr. Peter was so nice and he even invited us to have dinner with him at Taal Vista. However, we decided to head back home since it was already getting late.
