My review is majority of the seniors in this city go to this church frequently on Fridays. Catholic Filipino People prefer to go to this church. This Church is for Senior Citizen Filipino on Fridays (Apung Macalulu).

The busiest day of the week is during Friday. A lot of vendors will flock on the surrounding area all day long. If you don't want to rub elbows with people, they go during Friday. The ventilation of the shrine improved thanks to the big ceiling fan installed. The shrine was renovated and gives peace to pilgrims who visits. If you will bring your own car, you might have a hard time looking for parking space. Public Transportation is available but you have to walk from/to the main highway. Just bring small bags for your convenience.

Angeles City, is a busy city. However, Apung Mamacalulu Shrine offers a retreat for those who would like silence and rest. Parking is adequate, the facade is renovated and offers a sophisticated style, and the nave and other amenities are appreciated. The Apung Mamacalulu statue offers healing and rest.

One of the oldest churches in Angeles City. Since my High School Days I've been visiting this miraculous image of Apung Mamacalulu. Some may not believe but i usually visit the shrine and asked blessings before i take exams.

Before it was only considered as a chapel called "visitas" by the local. Now it is already a parish and it has improved a lot. Every Friday is the regular visit for Apung Mamacalulu. Its Feast is every last Friday of October.
Aside from visiting the miraculous Shrine, you may enjoy buying various items around the vicity at a very low price.

The best day to visit the Apung Mamacalulu Shrine is the early morning hours every Friday. Masses are held every hour on the hour, although there are quite a number of devotees and pilgrims as well. The masses are in English, Tagalog, and Kapampangan. A super big electric fan is enough to bring comfort to the church goers but the small fans, are also utilized when there are so many peolpe inside the church. Choir members are a mix of old and young membersand they sing beautifully specially the Kapampangan versions usually heard when the mass is said in Kampampangan. Highly recommend that you visit and hear mass at this Shrine.

A visit to this Shrine is a must! The church has been refurbished and rebuilt to accommodate the large number of devotees. The masses are held on the hour, every hour specially if you comes on a Friday. The masses are celebrated by priests who speaks Kapampangan, English and Pilipino.

We visited Apung Mamacalulu Shrine, a small but holy place, in the afternoon after our event in Angeles City. It was my first time to visit the shrine that is being housed by Santo Entierro (Holy Burial). This miraculous image is a statue depicting the burial of Jesus Christ. People are visiting this shrine to hear masses and asked for blessings and longed for hope.

This is a must-see place to visit for all the visitors who wanted to go to Angeles City.

This is open to all but parking is very limited. Be careful with pick pockets and snatchers, though there's always a presence of barangay tanods. Mass is very solemn. However, the place near the entrance is quite noisy due to people coming and leaving.

An addition to our annual Visita Iglesia. Not even temperatures in the high 40s could deter the family from coming to this Church.. Brings out memories of younger days when people and places where all very simple.. Nice place to pray and reflect...

Being a local of Angeles City, I get to visit this relatively new Diocesan Shrine from time to time, The shrine has a loyal following from Catholics who often visit the shrine and claim answered prayers for their visits.

For the Catholics who wish to experience a quiet and serene place of worship in their provincial travels, this can be part of their itinerary. Just avoid the place on Fridays which the locals term as "APU day" as it gets crowded when the faithful flock to the Shrine on this day and the surrounding streets turn into a flea market making access to the shrine quite stressful. This can be the local equivalent of "Baclaran Day" on Wednesdays.

The place has a store where one can buy religious items and can have them blessed if the priest is available.

One can take the Provincial Bus from Manila to Angeles City (Philippine Rabbit Bus Lines) and take a 5-10 min tricycle ride from the Angeles City Rabbit bus terminal to the shrine. For private vehicles, the shrine is about 30 minutes (depending on traffic conditions) from the North Luzon Expressway Dau or Angeles exits.
