list of churches in metro manila business districts

Catholic Churches will be packed today in observance of Ash Wednesday to participate in a ritual ushering in the Lenten season, the 40 days of preparation for Easter. Devotees will line up after the Mass for the application of ashes on their forehead, administered by priests and lay ministers using ashes which are typically gathered after the palms from the previous year’s Palm Sunday.

To facilitate devout Catholics, especially the working class, to join in the observance of Ash Wednesday, churches throughout the country will likely be open from morning up to early evening.

We have come up with a list of churches near Metro Manila Business Districts you can visit even after a grueling day at work.
