San Antonio de Padua Church in Sulangan, Samar is a pilgrim site. It has thousands of devotees to its patron saint – “San Antonio de Padua”, who has probably performed a lot of miraculous intercessions that made this place so special and visited by many. It is not easy going there, about nearly a 4-hour drive from Tacloban City, and the road is not quite good all the way, there are some portions that the infrastructures are still poor and needs improvement. Though it is not that bad after all. We usually jump off around 5am, arrive there around 9am just in time for their 9:00am mass. Probably the last town on the eastern side of Samar, it is really a beautiful town aside from the famous church. The town facing the Pacific Ocean, one must not forget that it has a bounty of fish and other seafood that are fresh and priced reasonably than the ones bought in the wet markets. We usually buy some, packed with ice on a styro, and we are good to go back home. By then we are a bit tired, but it is surely a rewarding experience.
