Welcome Pilgrims to The Marian Orchard!
“Mary was the first pilgrim. Her journey of faith, beginning with the stunning announcement of her Son’s impending birth to His last excruciating moments in Calvary, has inspired veneration as old as Christianity itself.”
May your visit to The Marian Orchard today provide you rest, give you peace, and gift you with enlightenment on your own journey.
The Marian Orchard is a pilgrimage site found in Brgy. Malabanan, Balete, Batangas set amidst sprawling land reminiscent of European gardens. We are open every day, from 7 am to 7 pm.
TAKE THE TOUR NOW
As The Marian Orchard celebrates its 30th year this 2018, FAITH Colleges, through The Marian Orchard FAITH Foundation Inc, invites you to explore and experience the ever expanding features of the pilgrim park.
The Marian Orchard shall serve as a spiritual oasis that will promote the Roman Catholic religion through the propagation of Marian devotion and other religious activities that will inspire a renewal of FAITH.
Since its turnover to FAITH Colleges in September 2014, The Marian Orchard has spent the last three years doing a major upgrade and improvement to the existing features of the pilgrim park.

Due to the recent Taal Volcano eruption and imminent danger that it poses, the Marian Orchard is temporarily closed. While we would want to welcome visitors, we do not want to compromise safety. The Marian Orchard is located in Balete where residents have already been evacuated.
For now, we are asking for prayers for all the families and communities who are directly affected by this calamity. And prayers, too for our leaders, officials, workers, volunteers, and everyone who are rendering their services and sacrificing their own safety to help those in need.
For donations, please direct them to FAITH Colleges: First Asia Institute of Technology and Humanities through the FAITH Center for Extension Services located at #2 JPLaurel Highway, Tanauan City, Batangas.
May the good Lord bless us all.
