Regina Rosarii Institute for Contemplation in Asia or simply Regina RICA is a venue for serenity, silence and stillness in this noisy and harried world. It is a 13.5 hectare land in the hills of Tanay, Rizal, Philippines envisioned by the Dominican Sisters of Regina Rosarii to be a place of pilgrimage, prayer, contemplation, ecological sanctuary and wellness environment.
At the heart of Regina RICA is the 71-ft statue of Our Lady of Regina Rosarii on top of the hill. The statue is uniquely defined by her hand opening her mantle, as if inviting people to come inside.
The divine statue is the heart and soul of Regina RICA. Inside the icon is a Sanctuary of Universal Love and Devotion or SULOD. In Ilonggo, sulod means enter. Regina RICA allows a rather different experience inside the icon. An experience so divine, a desire so pure.
Other Facilities inside Regina RICA
Pasilungan (Ilonggo for “shelter”) serves as the place’s navel where families and groups gather to eat, share stories, and bring home souvenirs.
