Written by Teresita P. Unabia, Bernardo N. Sepeda, EdD and Rosanni R. Sarile, The Virgins of Cavite: History, Art and Religiosity has been launched and is now available for purchase at the Cavite Studies Center.

The book covered the ten venerated images of the Virgin Mary from the five (5) parish municipalities and four (4) cities in the Province of Cavite which are the:

  • Nuestra Señora de Candelaria in the Parish of Silang;
  • Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion in the Parish of Maragondon;
  • Nuestra Señora de la Soledad de Porta Vaga in the Parish of San Roque, Cavite City;
  • Nuestra Señora del Pilar in the Parish of Imus;
  • La Inmaculada Concepcion in the Diocesan Shrine and Parish of Naic;
  • Nuestra Señora del Rosario in the Parish of Rosario;
  • La Immaculada Concepcion in the Parish of Dasmariñas;
  • Nuestra Señora de Guia in the Parish of Magallanes;
  • Our Lady of Lourdes in Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, Tagaytay City;
  • Our Lady of La Sallette in the National Shrine in Biga I, Silang.
Cavite was appropriately called Tierra de Maria Santisima (Land of the Most Holy Mary) in the last quarter of the 16th century… inspite of the seeming plurality of titles, endearing names, feast days, and devotional rituals, Mary still is a “unifying force” manifesting singularity in the religiosity and/or spirituality among the Caviteños... The book is now available at the Cavite Studies Center for Php 1,500.00 per copy.
