SIMALA OF CEBU

Posted: March 21, 2015 in Uncategorized

Simala is a place of worship and devotion. It is a place where you can give thanks and ask forgiveness to the Lord. Simala is best known for its majestic cathedral and stationed crying altar of the blessed Virgin Mary. 



Daily mass is also held inside the cathedral. 



Inside the cathedral, you can get close to the crying altar of the Blessed Virgin Mary which is believed to help and heal people in need. In fact, a lot of testimonials were displayed on the walls of the cathedral, these are stories of miraculous act, faith and love.

There are also stations where you can light a candle, pray and make your wish. Some wrote there wish on a piece of paper and place it on a box. 

Experiencing Simala makes me believe  that faith bonds people together. It guides and unites us to a direction that makes way to peace. Most importantly, faith brings out the goodness within us.

Just 1 hour bus trip away from Dumaguete City, in the southern part of the Negros Island, is the place of the people of Siaton.
