We attended the 8 am Sunday mass and my advice- better to go on a weekday. However there are kids who guide you to a parking spot with the request that you buy from their family store the usual kasoy (cashew) and suman (sticky rice wrapped in palm leaves) delicacies in Antipolo. We bought a lot!

The church has outdoor seating for the pilgrims since there is an indoor capacity requirement. The sound system was really good and I observed the attendees to be very devout and pious. It was solemn.

At the rear of the church one can go up a flight of stairs to pray up close to the virgen dela paz. Very organized.

Always a pilgrimage must whenever I am in the area.

First time ko magpa car blessing sa Antipolo, that was last Sunday. We dont know the entrance, and ang dami humaharang nag aalok ng parking, we then ask someone where to park for car blessing, so he guide us all the way to the private parking area (P60), in exchange na sa nanay nya daw kami bumili ng pasalubong. So, ok, coz bibili din nman ako ng kasuy at suman.
Kuya even assisted us all throughout the process, and other manong na seller of religious merchandise.
So, d n kmi nag fill out ng form for registration, dumating ang priest, na bless na car at nag abot ako donation sa pari mismo.
Thankful naman ako kasi mabilis kami natapos kahit na marami ang nakapila dun sa private parking area ( at the back of Antipolo church).
After the blessing, the manong seller of rosary ask us to buy items, rosary for P180. Mahal price pero i bought it ksama sya sa nabendisyunan ni father(and isa si manong sa nag assist sa min).
Now, punta n kmi kay kuyang guide for pasalubong sa store nila. Grabeee, sobra mahal presyo just like the rosary. Hayyss, doble, triple price nila.
Ayoko na sana bumili, but since natulungan naman kmi ni kuya, napabili na rin ako.

P.S. for First Timer (Car blessing)

1. Never go there on Sunday.
2. May car blessing everyday.
3. Never entertain yun mga guide or e0⁰⁰ven park attendant daw. Just ignore them. Much better dun sa traffic enforcer magtanong.
4. Park your car in front of the church, there are plenty parking slots available, para madali mapuntahan ni father.
5. Go directly to registration area. Fill out form, then give donation. ( the guide said P100 donation daw)
6. Wait for the priest.

GANYAN LANG KADALI. You don't need guide, assistance of others. You can do it on your own. Rather than, ma oblige ka to buy expensive pasalubong.

We went to Antipolo Church, Sunday afternoon for car blessing. Full parking as expected, a young man guide us going to the private parking area ( at the back of the church), from which he assisted us all throughout from parking up to the end, he was very helpful, he's not a fixer, he only ask us to buy pasalubong at their stall.
Pros
1. If you are in a hurry, follow the guide, park your car and everything will be settled. The priest will come to you, bless your car afterwards give the donation directly to the priest. Then done.

Cons
1. Choose ordinary day, not Sunday ( to avoid the crowd)
2. If i have to return for another car blessing i will do it on my own without the guide.
3. The pasalubong - overly expensive.
4. Avoid the manongs that are taking pictures (10pictures for 500?, no di namin binili), and the other manong with religious merchandise, pinatong nya rosary habang bini bless ang car. He says its P180-we took it, though i knew "mahal", since na bless din yun rosary and the manong also help para mapadali ang proseso ng car blessinh, ok na lang din.

For the first timer, i suggest, never, never follow a guide ( kahit pa sila na mag aasikaso sa lahat), just go directly at registration area, fill up form, give donation and the priest will come to you.

It is one of the most beautiful churches in the Philippines, especially at night when they turn on the lights. Architecture of the church is unique. The only issue here is there is not enough parking space. I am privileged to live in this city.

Antipolo city is popular for being a pilgrimage site. It prides itself as the "Pilgrimage Capital of the Philippines". The Marian image of the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage or the Virgin of Antipolo, which was brought in from Mexico in 1626, and enshrined in the Antipolo Cathedral has a continuous following among Filipino Catholics since the Spanish colonial era.
It’s a beautiful round shape with colorful windows has great aquatic. You can bless your religious items or car right after mass outside the church in a special designated area.

We arrived here around 1:20 PM and decided to visit the Cathedral before we ate lunch. We were in time to witness a funeral for four. I guess it's pretty common to hold a funeral for several deceased persons at once being the Catholic religion is the majority religion here.

Normally where I live if there is a funeral for four it's usually for members of the same family who encountered a terrible tragedy such as fire or homicide. But I think with the overpopulation in the Philippines that it's understandable that Antipolo is not like Brooklyn known as the "city of churches" where there are many religions so highly unlikely others would share the same funeral service in Brooklyn.

This church sits upon a hill. It's really in an idyllic setting looking down on the city. Then right outside a few steps away is the business area with fast food and vendors.
