Pink Sisters Chapel. This lovely church is where you will get a peek of the Pink Sisters from the other side of the metal grilles, separating them from the pilgrims. They are positioned near the altar, while the pilgrims are positioned near the entrance door. This is where masses are held and where pilgrims and devotees pray and write their petitions.

Petition Box Area. This is located on the left side/wing of the church. walk up to the front where you see the bulletin board and a small cross. There are two labeled drop boxes there — the petition box and the donation box. The petition box is on the bottom left of the wooden frame with a small cross. drop your petitions and give way to others.

The station of the cross Garden. situated just across from the church, this is a unwinding green space for visitors to unwind and have some quiet time. Please observe silence.
