Sagada Mission Compound: St. Mary’s Church

WHERE: Sagada, Mountain Province

DATE OF TRAVEL: March 03, 2007

Because this Episcopalian church is where most Sagadans go to worship and because the whole compound will just give you a sense of serenity and peace.

The Mission of St. Mary the Virgin in Sagada was founded in 1904 by American Missionary John Staunton. The church is Episcopalian and the school (St. Mary's School) was part of their project to Christianize the Non-Christian Northern Groups. You can find the oldest and the first bell in Sagada upon entering the church yard. This church will lead you to the school, the cemetery (Calvary Hill) and Echo Valley.
