Monastery of the Transfiguration of Malaybalay City :The "BRUNCH" with the Monks

Every 2nd Sunday of the month, a regular community breakfast and lunch or most commonly known as "BRUNCH with the MONKS", is served with an affordable rate, since the mass starts at exactly 8:00 a.m. and ends at 9:15 a.m. This would be a great deal for family outdoor event. 
When going to the Monastery of Transfiguration Church, this rules for proper attire inside the church should strictly be followed.

The view of the Mt. Kitanglad at the background and the majestic pyramid type of structure Monastery Church at the Eastern View.
Comfort room were provided for the church goers.
They also have their own version of Pinutos, the "Pinutos na Humba". If you're in a hurry and can't wait with BRUNCH with the monks, you'll have to prefer the pinutos. It seems here in Bukidnon, Pinutos is most commonly used especially on food preparation. The food is wrapped with a banana leaves, an old way of eating without using the "Cubiertos" or eating only with a hand.
The buffet style of food preparation for easy serving.
My share worth only at P150 per person. Package with monk's blend coffee and juice and their delicious "Ginataang Halo-halo". Their famous "Humba" or "Paksiw" or "Adobo".

The friendly monks, Fr. Elias (has a soprano voice, if you hear him singing during the mass)  and Bro. Dom with the Oblates of the Monastery of the Transfiguration who are behind this activity. On this occasion, the other monks were not available during service.

If you are planning to hear the mass and wanted to join the BRUNCH with  the monks, you should go early, for you to have available seats during the mass proper.
