Churches bring ‘Visita Iglesia’ online, accept donations via PayMaya

Roman Catholics can still continue the Holy Week tradition of “Visita Iglesia” as churches and religious organizations go online. These churches and religious organizations also accept donations via PayMaya.

The Mary Immaculate Parish – Levitown, Baguio Cathedral, Basilica Minore del Santo Nino Cebu, Sacred Heart Cebu, Saint Joseph the Worker Parish Iloilo, Marian Orchard Faith Foundation Batangas, Caritas Manila, and Feast Ortigas are among the Philippine Churches and religious organizations who are organizing online Visita Iglesia activities this Holy Week.

Those who wish to donate to these churches even at home can do so by scanning the QR code displayed on their social media page using their PayMaya app. Otherwise, they can go to their organization’s website to be able to make donations and other financial contributions using cards and e-Wallets.


Currently, over 80 churches and religious organizations across the Philippines have already adopted PayMaya’s end-to-end cashless solutions, including Digital QR, PayMaya Checkout online payment gateway, and digital invoicing solutions. This allows their respective congregations to contribute to their mission using the scan-to-pay feature of the PayMaya app or via any Visa, Mastercard, and JCB credit, debit, and prepaid card.

“Most aspects of our lives have been upended by the pandemic, but many sectors have found ways to continue delivering services. Our churches and religious organizations play an important role in our country’s recovery, and we are proud to empower them with innovative solutions that can help them stay connected with their congregations,” said PayMaya Founder and CEO Orlando B. Vea.

Due to the mass gathering restriction under the government’s recent quarantine guidelines, churches and religious organizations bring the Visita Iglesia and other Holy Week activities online through their social media and other video platforms.

PayMaya provides over 28 million Filipinos with access to financial services. Customers can pay, add money, cash out or remit through its over 200,000 digital touchpoints nationwide.
