Caleruega Church

The Transfiguration Chapel

Rising tall and majestic in the highest point of Caleruega is the Transfiguration Chapel. From here one can behold the expanse of Caleruega and witness the glorious opus of radiant nature – a symphony of sky, trees, and the distant hills of Batulao. Like St. Peter during Jesus’ transfiguration, anyone who experiences such splendor of nature’s poetry will declare: Lord, it is good for us to be here… (Mt.17:4).


The chapel itself is replete with symbolism. Its façade is a reproduction of the original chapel in Caleruega, Spain. Its hut-shaped roof is in remembrance of the temporary sheds that the apostles wanted to build for Jesus, Moses, and Elijah during the transfiguration (Mt 17:1-8). The seal of the Dominican Province of the Philippines is depicted in stained glass in the upper portion of the chapel’s façade. The seven grapevines entwined in the steel doors of the chapel not only portray Jesus as the vine and we as branches (John 15:5), but also symbolize the seven sacraments. The main altar is a carved tree trunk representing the “stem of Jesse,” mentioned in the Book of the Prophet Isaiah: then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, and a branch from his roots will bear fruit (Is 11:1). The tabernacle is a gentle reminder of the burning bush through which God revealed Himself to Moses in Mt. Sinai (Ex 3:2). The birds carved on the communion table are representations of God’s providence in Matthew 6:26: Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, neither do they reap…and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. The stained glass depicts the Transfiguration of Jesus witnessed by Peter, John, and Luke. With Jesus are Moses and Elijah, two significant instruments of God in the Old Testament (Mat 17:3).

Reviews:
“Wedding in Caleruega is a dream come true for me. Way before Andrew became my boyfriend, i am already wishing for a Caleruega wedding. Our travel to Nasugbu to submit the requirements and for our pre cana was worth it! Super beautiful!” Andrew & Dette

“Our Chapel doesn’t only captivate us but also our guests! It’s worth the travel! Be sure to tell your guest to come early so that they would have enough time to roam and capture the beauty of Caleruega. Staff were very accommodating (ready to answer your queries). The cost will only cover the use of the Chapel and its sound system, in short, di pa kasama ang choir and flower arrangements.” Romeo & Aileen

“We fell in love with this church. There’s no place else we have in mind where we would say our vows. The UST Faculty of College of Nursing usually have their retreats at Caleruega so it has a certain attachment to us. It is very picturesque and we feel that its very solemn and quiet. We knew from the start the guests will enjoy its scenic spots. True enough they really did. We enjoyed our picture taking because the view of the mountains was just amazing. For older guests there is a small gate at the side of the chapel from the road to save them the hassle of taking the stairs.” Rene & Joanne

  15. Good day.. Just want to inquire how much is the rates for the church, including the priest or any inclusive of the package.. It will be on sept10, 2015.. Ty very much

  16. Hi. I just wanna ask something. I remember I saw this article on one of the magazine on this newspaper years ago and this is a true story. The story is about a bunch of college boys who went on retreat or outing in Batangas. They are having fun so they decided to take a picture in front of the church, when the pic was developed they saw a woman dressed in a wedding gown waiting for her groom. But as they recall, there are no wedding event the time they took that picture. What puzzles me is I cant remember the name of the church but when I saw the church in Caleruega on the internet, I am very sure that its in Caleruega Church. When the boys researched about the woman standing on the church they said that it happened when the woman was waiting on the day of her wedding and her groom didnt show up. In other words nagpaparamadam ung bride. Hope you can give an article about this. Thanks
