Ilog Jordan, Brgy. Olivete

This place is a popular Lenten destination for people seeking spiritual rejuvenation and healing.

Pilgrims gather at the Sambahan ng Amang Kaama-amahan (it is different from adarnista but still a part

of rizalista) at Inang Kaina-inahan (adarnista) church. The religious sect’s shrine has a chapel on a hill at

the foot of the Sierra Madre mountain range and a spring that members call “Ilog Jordan” (Jordan River).

One of the highlights of the pilgrimage is the sect’s procession on Good Friday, where participants

(ladies in white gown and men in barong) walk barefoot on the 2.3-km stretch of the village’s dirt road.
