Welcome to Regina RICA
Regina RICA is a gift given by our Lady. As the Hymn to her says, “Oh the Lady is waiting on top of the hill…”, we believe we were called to prepare a place for you. Mama Mary is waiting for you.

First time we went there was way back July 2011. Very memorable for me and my soon to be husband that time. Amazed how big the image was. Place is very peaceful. A perfect place to pray and reflect.
Took some photos with Regina Rica / Mama Mary. We included those photos to our prenup album. August 2011 when we got married and felt so blessed.
Until now, 2019.. We kept on coming back to the said place. Together with our family, relatives and friends. And the same feeling, as if it was the first time we get there. Feeling blessed and very peaceful. Sisters, staffs are also very accomodating.
Will continue to visit Regina Rica.Aileen Ison Manzana
Shalom..It’s a renewing experience for us as a couple. We are in the midst of crisis in almost whole aspect in our life (Marriage Relationship, Finances and depression) when our group in Tagum,Davao invited us for a retreat in Regina Rica in Tanay,Rizal.Through the heart touching retreat course, life experiences shared and the Tranquility of the place we realized that in the situation that we have God is working His ways to make order in our lives all we need to do our part to accept God’s Love and Love HIM back. On the Second day of the retreat I have the chance to offer a personal prayer under the mantle of Mama Mary and ask for Her intersession in fixing our lives, Sister Matthew tap on my back and said Surrender all to Him and “ALL SHALL BE WELL” I can’t help but shade tears, its like that Mama Mary is in front of me and inviting me to Trust God and His plan in my life. On the last night of the retreat around 11:00 pm Me and my wife renewed our vows with God and Mama Mary as our witnesses and commit to renew our life as we face and hurdle all challenges that we may face in life. Currently our life is totally different of what we are before. God in place so many changes as we move to a new place, to a new country we make our life available for His mission to fulfill his ministries. Having attended in that retreat i believed that it’s the best decision in made in my life. Soon we will be back to Regina Rica the place where we took the brave step of our renewal.Carlo Paul Radin

My First Visit at Regina RICA was Holy Week Year 2013 I was with my Family and that time Naghahanap po ako ng work nung nakapasok na kami sa SULOD nag dasal ako ng mataimtim at yun din po sinulat ko hinulog sa petition box na sana tulungan ako makahanap ng work after a month I receive an email from my former intern supervisor offering me a job. Thank you Mama Mary Regina Rosarii for all the answered Prayers. Pag nakarating ka sa Rica kung pwede lang dun kana mag stay kasi Napaka Solem and peaceful ng place. Lahat ng worries ay malilimutan. Thank you Regina Rosarii Sisters Especially Sister Eppie for establishing a Sacred Ground like Regina RICA.
