Baclaran Church by Dennis Natividad · 365 Project.

The National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, also known as Redemptorist Church and the Baclaran Church, is a prominent Latin Rite Roman Catholic parish church in Baclaran, the city of Parañaque, Metro Manila, the Philippines.

The shrine is one of the largest Marian churches in the Philippines and features the icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. Devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help is popular amongst Filipino Catholics, and gave rise to the throngs of devotees who flood the church every Wednesday to attend Mass and pray the Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help.In Manila, Wednesdays are popularly called “Baclaran Day” due to congested roads brought on by pilgrims to the shrine.
