Pray

When in Dauis, strengthen your faith. Pray at the centuries-old Our Lady of the Assumption Shrine despite it almost being toppled by an earthquake in 2013. Take some blessed holy water drawn from the well of a spring the church was built around. Drop off some generous donations for the charity works and maintenance of the church and its other facilities. As of the moment though, church services are held at the open field adjacent to the church edifice and at the nearby Terraza de Mariveles. This is because painstaking restoration works are still being done on the original church structure.

Love

When in Dauis, fall in love with mother nature. Explore the interior of the Hinagdanan Cave in barangay Bingag, go snorkeling in the various beach sites of barangays Bingag, Biking, and Dao, learn a little more about bees and companion farming at the Bohol Bee Farm, or fall in love with learning traditional ways of doing things also at Bohol Bee Farm.
