Kamay Ni Hesus » Lucban Quezon Spiritual Side Trip

Kamay Ni Hesus Ascending Christ Grotto
Lucban Quezon is actually great for any kind of traveling, as it also provides many attractions including the colorful Pahiyas Festival, food tripping - pancit hab-hab, as well as gorgeous nature - Mt. Banahaw. However, aside from old churches, places of interest also include spiritual and healing sites. 

Visitors wishing to benefit their spiritual life and seeking to get healed, physical and spiritual, should definitely take a side trip to Kamay ni Hesus Healing Church in Brgy. Tinamnan.

This Catholic national landmark, popularly known as “Kamay ni Hesus” was built around 2002 by the Kamay ni Hesus Ministry Foundation, Inc. founded by the renowned faith healer Rev. Fr. Joseph "Joey" Ayala Faller and the Javierto-Brizuela family. 

Fr. Faller, ordained priest, and a 2009 Gusi Peace Prize Laureate for divine healing and humanitarianism, now runs the place. Regular healing masses are held at the healing center at the foothill where a 50-foot image of the resurrected Jesus Christ is located.  
Noah's Ark kids playground
Noah's Ark-themed playground is also available in the area making it great for family trips. This park is conveniently situated at the back of the healing center and church, thus it is very advantageous for adults to attend the healing mass while their children play at the park. 
Noah's Ark
Another imposing structure beside the  children's park is the Noah’s Ark which serves as a place of prayer and meditation. This house of prayer has fully furnished air conditioned rooms for pilgrims and those who are attending retreats. The place welcomes anyone who would like to experience quiet time through private and group retreats, recollections, seminars and workshops.

Eden Falls
The fountain of healing water (From Mount Banahaw) or the Eden Falls that is starting from the grotto of Mama Mary-Our Lady of Lourdes is also said to have healing powers.
