Upon entering you'll see people selling eggs. They say that this is the offering for the Saint. We went here to ask guidance for our law school and bar exams. When donating, don't bring eggs, i think they have too much of it already.

It's my fourth time to visit but my third time to visit with family. Apart from being able to pray, this place shows us that people come together as a family or a group to offer petitions and have faith

Santa Clara is famous for offering eggs to the monastery and writing your prayers with it. They also offer blessing of religious artifacts. Church mass is held every early morning and late afternoon.

The place is very spacious and brings out calmness in you. Upon entering the church, you will have a feeling of relief and peace. A very good place to spend time with the Lord and pray.
