Camarines Sur: Parish Church of St. Michael the Archangel

Parish Church of St. Michael the Archangel

Camarines Sur

During our second day of the adventure in backpacking from Cebu to Caramaon, CamSur, before we had another stretch of island hopping activities for our second day (we went to the islands of Manlawi, Cotivas and Sabitang-Laya), we dropped by a church in the Caramoan town.

The Parish Church of St. Michael the Archangel in the remote town of Caramoan in the Philippines. This church was put up by the Franciscan missionaries who wanted to spread the good news in the late 16th century.

It was nice to be able to wake up and then go to church, even if we did fall behind a little late for mass because of being tired from our island hopping in Matukad and Lahos. The St. Michael the Archangel church has a large and wide courtyard which is great for spending an afternoon or in our case, morning to sing songs of praises.

I could only see bikes, trikes and probably a jeepney or two parked but aside from that, there were no other vehicles outside which made it really serene and remote. I like the way the faded red or rustic bricks complimented the fresh greenery of the lawn.

This church in the Caramoan town gives you that simple but nostalgic feeling that whenever you come back to this place (if you grew up here), you’d remember the times you’ve spent being dragged by your parents to mass.
