A great place for contemplation! The place is very serene and full of nature. Service is great and the quarters are very well maintained. yun nga lang the place is so far from the main road. rental of vehicle is a super must when going to this place.

The trip is around 2 to 3 hours from Cagayan de Oro city. We visited on a Thursday and used a car rental service to get here. The monastery is a perfect place to reflect. The churches (old and new) are beautiful. Unfortunately we weren't able to catch their weekday mass. There is no place to eat on a weekday,... More

My family visited this place last Oct.2. We really like the place. It is very solemn and the location is just perfect. The temperature in Bukidnon is also a plus factor. The next day, we also got the chance to hear their 8am Sunday mass. It was very solemn and the singing is beautiful. After the mass, we bought some... More

A truly perfect place for spiritual retreat! The pyramid architecture is a magnificent work of art! Good time to visit is on every 2nd Sunday of the month since they will have a buffet breakfast after the mass.

Atop a hill, this church offers the faithful and tourist alike a place for soulful and quiet reflection. Sunday mass is made more special by the presence of an all-make choir which sang Gregorian chants. I can understand why a good number of locals attend the Sunday mass in the Monastery.

I first visited the place last March 2013 to spend my Lenten Season in Silence. I should say that I am blessed to be here as St. Therese of Lisieux’s relic happened to be kept in this monastery for the holy week. I joined the mass for her send off to Davao City which concluded my Lenten retreat as well.... More
