Just beside the Candle Gallery is Blessing Area.The pilgrims who have brought and bought religious articles from the Manaoag Shrine for their devotion and memorabilia have the option of having them blessed every hour by a priest right after the celebration of the mass in the Church. The present Blessing Area provides a more spacious and prayerful atmosphere compared to its previous location. Beside the Candle Gallery’s new store that sells candles, the Blessing Area accommodates the pilgrims’ requests for the holy water, the blessing of their religious articles as well as their vehicles.
