TIERRA DE MARIA – HAVEN OF MEDITATION AND ENRICHMENT (HOME) IN TAGAYTAY




Haven of Meditation and Enrichment at Tierra De Maria in Tagaytay City is just beside the Picnic Grove. 

The 50 foot image of the Blessed Mary welcomes you as you enter the compound.  It’s not really a huge place but if you want to escape the party atmosphere of Picnic Grove then this is the place to be.

Even if the place has many visitors, everyone observes silence in respect for those people who are reverently praying.

Entrance Fee:  Free, but there are donation boxes where you can place your love offering for the maintenance of the place. 

They charge P5.00 for the use of comfort room, but I can’t say how clean the comfort room is because I didn’t get to use it.

WHAT TO SEE:
1. The 50 foot image of the Blessed Virgin Mary.


2.  Garden vine murals depicting the Mysteries of the Holy Rosary and of the Stations of the Cross.



3.  The symbolic Wedding of Cana wishing well, beside it is the stand for your lighted candles.



4.  The different images of Our Lady inside the chapel – like the Our Lady of Guadalupe and the replica of the Our Lady of Manaoag.



5.   The huge tile calendars of saints.  On each day of the month there’s a picture and a brief description of the saint who celebrates their feast day on that date.


6.  The fish spa.  I forgot to take the picture of the foot spa.

7.  The viewing deck on the third floor where you can see the Taal volcano and a platform from where you can hold the hand of the 50 foot image of the Blessed Virgin Mary.



8.  The birds around the place specially the talkative Myna at the entrance.



WHAT TO DO:

1.  Pray and meditate.



2.  Attend the healing mass every first Saturday of the month.



3.  Write your prayer requests and drop it at the petition box so that other people can pray for you as well.

4.  Take pictures.

5.  Buy pasalubong.  There are some vendors selling yummy goodies inside and outside the compound.

So if ever you are in the vicinity of Tagaytay City, don't forget to drop by this place and pray.   It's a good place to quiet down, and meditate on the love of God.

@anonymous,
From Cubao, ride a bus to Tagaytay. There's a San Agustin bus line at the Araneta Bus Station so you can ride there. When your in Tagaytay, alight at Jollibee which is near the rotunda. Outside Jollibee, there are many tricycles plying that route, just ask the driver to take you to Tierra Maria. Tierra Maria is beside Tagaytay Picnic Grove. I hope this information helps you.

@ Josephine, I am not really sure if there are public vans at Star Mall or Taft Avenue station that ply along Tagaytay. I haven't tried that route. Sorry, I can't help you with your question.

@anonymous,
Hello, their facebook page states that the healing mass is at 3:00 p.m. But just to be sure, here are the numbers posted on their facebook page so you can confirm their healing mass schedule:

+6346 8601942; +63917 3286279; +63922 8826279

I'm from Quezon city... I want to donate even a minimal amount because of my answered prayer when I visited there last December... how will I do it? do I need to go there personally?
Hope someone could help me.
