Baclaran Market | Things to do in Parañaque City-Metro Manila
|Address:||Redemptionist St., Baclaran, Parañaque City, Metro Manila|
Baclaran Church gets its name from the word baklad, meaning "fish trap". Located along Coastal Road and facing Manila Bay, Baclaran used to be a place where villagers collect their fish. Today, Baclaran Church, also called the National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, is one of the three most visited churches in Metro Manila. It attracts about 120,000 devotees every Wednesday, otherwise known as Baclaran Day. The church's highlight is the widely venerated icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. The icon was brought to Baclaran by Redemptionists priests in 1932, where it drew a steady number of followers. Built in 1953, Baclaran Church and its attached Convento were initially dedicated to Saint Therese of Lisieux. When the church opened to the public, however, it was quickly associated with Our Mother of Perpetual Help.
