Day 7: Daraga Church: Hall of Saints

At the side of the Daraga Church is a long hallway that spans the length of the church.  As you enter the arched entrance, tall statues of the different saints flank the left side. 
The statues make a dominant presence as it towers over a stone base that holds the description of who each saint is.
(According to the Legazpi website the saints are all Franciscan saints)
There are 12 statues in all and at its end is an old iron candle holder. 
You can purchase candles at the church office located by the Hall of Saints entrance.  There are different candle colors available depending on what it is that you are praying for.
As you can see, we all each lit a candle.
