More on Pink Sisters' Convent in Tagaytay City

I noticed that many people are interested with the Pink Sisters of Tagaytay City. Many of the visitors on my post, A Visit to Pink Sisters' Convent, asked about the mass schedules, contact information, address and even about the requirements for being a Pink Sister.

I made this post to serve as a FAQ page for those who are looking for information about the Pink Sisters in Tagaytay City.

A Little Information about the Pink Sisters

 

The Pink Sisters are officially known as the Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters. Their community was established by St. Arnold Janssen together with Mother Maria Michael and Blessed Maria Virgo on 1896 in Holland.* They are fondly called as the Pink Sisters because of their rose-colored habit, which they wear to honor the Holy Spirit.

The Pink Sisters first came to the Philippines via the invitation Bishop Alfredo Versoza, who is considered as the first Filipino bishop of Lipa.** “10 pioneer sisters, 5 Germans and 5 Americans from Philadelphia, arrived in Manila in 1923.”*** They stayed in the convent of the “Blue Sisters” (Missionary Sisters Servants of the Holy Spirit), who are their “sister order”, before going to their convent in Lipa, Batangas.

The hot and humid weather of Batangas didn't suit the Pink Sisters and many of them got sick. Because of this, the Pink Sisters were transferred to Baguio City. Their convent in the Summer Capital of the Philippines is now one of the many convents of the Pink Sisters in the country.

Other Convents of the Pink Sisters

 

The Convent of Divine Mercy in Tagaytay is only one of 6 convents of Pink Sisters in the Philippines. So, if you are seeking for prayers from the Pink Sisters for your spiritual and temporal needs then you might not need to go to Tagaytay.

For those who want to send letters or packages to the Pink Sisters in Tagaytay, you can use this address:

P.O. Box # 08, Holy Spirit Drive,
Brgy. Maitim 2nd, East
4120 Tagaytay City

Unfortunately, the telephone number shown on the Pink Sisters website is wrong according to some commenters to my previous blog post. Other telephone numbers that I found in the Internet were also said to be wrong. It is possible that the sisters had their telephone line cut off. So, if you intend to communicate with the Pink Sisters it is better for you to drop by their convent and talk to them personally.

How to Go to Pink Sisters' Convent in Tagaytay

 

Going to the Divine Mercy Convent is easy and it is just around 300 meters from the E. Aguinaldo Highway at the end of Holy Spirit Drive, which in Bing Map is named as Arnoldus Road.

If you are driving from the north, just follow E. Aguinaldo Highway until you see the signage of the Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters to your left. Turn left to Holy Spirit Drive until you reach the convent at the end of the road.

Those who are commuting from Manila or other Cavite provinces located north of Tagaytay should board a bus going to Tagaytay or Nasugbu. Go down at the place where you saw the signage of Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters located to your left. Just walk along the Holy Spirit Drive until you reach the convent at the end of the road.

Things to Do Inside Pink Sisters' Convent

 

One thing to keep in mind when entering the Pink Sisters' Convent in Tagaytay is that it is a holy place. The sisters live a life of silence and contemplation and it is disrespectful if you are noisy or cause disturbance. You should also wear modest clothing.

The Divine Mercy Convent is not a park so don't act like a tourist in this place. With these reminders said, here are the things that you can do once you're inside Pink Sisters' Convent.

 

1. Pray

 

Silence fosters prayer and allow us to meditate deeply. The Divine Mercy Convent is a good place for prayer. Another plus is that you are praying in front of the Most Holy Eucharist. Thus, you are praying directly to Jesus Christ when you pray inside this convent.

Another reason why many people flock to Pink Sisters' convent is that many people say that their prayers were answered after they prayed with the Pink Sisters. One commenter on my previous post said that his petitions were answered after going to a mass in the Divine Mercy Convent.

 

2. Attend Mass

 

Divine Mercy Convent has daily masses and Sunday masses. Here is the of the masses according to Pink Sisters' website****:

Daily masses: 6:30 a.m.
Daily vespers or benediction: 5:00 p.m.
Sunday mass: 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (with Vespers)
First Saturday mass: 4:15 p.m

 

3. Buy Yummy Treats

 

Anney, a fellow blogger, commented that Pink Sisters make delicious cookies. My brother also said that their buko pie is also delicious. I failed to buy those yummy treats when I visited their convent. :-(

If you're going to the Pink Sisters' convent in Tagaytay, I suggest that you buy some of their yummy treats. You will definitely enjoy eating it while you support the sisters financially.

 

4. Give Your Prayer Intentions

 

One of thing that I did when I visited the Pink Sisters' convent is to leave my prayer petitions to them. I  believe that the sisters were praying for my intentions in front of the Holy Eucharist.

There are papers and pens that are ready to be used by visitors who want to commend their intentions to the sisters. Just write your prayer intentions and drop it to the designated drop boxes.

So, I think that I already provided most of the questions that are being asked about the Pink Sisters' convent in Tagaytay. Hope I helped you with the information I posted here. Please don't hesitate to leave a comment if you still have questions.

  10. panu po ba maging isa sa pink sisters ??

    ReplyDelete

    1. First of all, you need to have a calling for the religious life. Once you recognize you have the vocation, it is wise to have a spiritual director (a priest, a religious sister or a spiritual friend). The spiritual director will guide you/ lead you to the right path. Then, you also have to have a habit of prayer...Remember, their life is centered in prayer. You may also wish to see the Mother Superior or the Vocation Directress of the Pink Sisters. From there, you'll find out "kung pano ka maging isa sa kanila."

      DISCERNMENT is vital! God calls each of us to do a specific mission. I'll be praying for your good intentions.

    1. Food is allowed inside as long as you will not eat them inside the premises of the convent.

      Yes, there is a dress code. People who are going to convent should dress modestly. Dress with plunging necklines, shorts, sando, mid-rib, spaghetti strap and similar clothing are not allowed in the convent.

  18. Just last Monday, i went to the Pink Sisters Convent for some soul-searching and prayer. a friend of mine have been telling me about how beautiful and serene the place is. i also didnt forget to write down my intentions (with my faith of them interceding through their payers). and just a few minutes ago, one of my prayers have been answered ... praise God! i never loose faith coz i know there is always an answer. and to think that this is the first time that i visited the place ... i know its not gonna be the last. i would definitely go back there, the travel is worth it. Thank u Lord!

    1. Salamat sa compliments. :-)

      The chapel of the pink sisters in Tagaytay is like the regular chapels so pwedeng ipasok ang sandals at sapatos sa loob. Ang makikita mo lang na kakaiba ay yung grills na nagbakod sa mga pink sisters from the outside world. Other than that ay katulad na ang chapel nila ng regular chapels.

      Sa labas, sa left side mo makikita yung pen and paper para sa prayer intentions at donations. Kung di mo mahanap ay magtanong na lang kayo sa guard.

      Tama po kayo. 6:30 AM po yung daily mass.

    2. "6:30 AM po yung daily mass" just to make sure, kasama po ba dito ang Saturdays o weekdays lang?
