Now before you start thinking “Woah, deathcare week. Scary“. It actually isn’t. Let me ask you. Have you planned about your funeral? Have you thought about what happens when you die, or are you planning to have your relatives sort through things? I’ll be honest to tell you I haven’t. After our Breakout Experience last weekend I learned a lot about deathcare planning and will be sharing these with you on the blog today. Together with all the promos and activities St. Peter has planned for us.
St. Peter Celebrates its 10th Deathcare Week for All Saints and All Souls days (UNDAS)
The St. Peter DeathCare Week is a major Corporate Social Responsibility and Public Service Program of St. Peter Chapels that aims to promote awareness on DeathCare planning and preparation. It is also our way of joining the entire nation in commemorating All Saints’ and All Souls’ days (UNDAS), which are traditionally honored events for Filipinos.
The St. Peter DeathCare Week starts on October 27 and culminates on November 2 – Araw ng Patay each year. To emphasize the need to plan ahead, not just for one’s memorial needs but all times,. they have partnered with Breakout Philippines, the country’s first and premier escape room game. From October 1 to November 6, 2017, experience how it is to plan, solve and escape with St. Peter in the following Breakout rooms and branches:
- SM North EDSA – Boogeyman and Sleep No More
- Greenbelt 5 – Corpse Bride
- Katipunan – Clownhouse

Standing Pink Casket replicas will be displayed at the St. Peter Tents in selected cemeteries nationwide during the St. Peter DeathCare Week. Cemetery-Goers and passersby can take photos inside the pink casket and enjoy this unique and free photo opportunity with their loved ones and friends.
FREE PINK TRICYCLE RIDES
Again, as part of their public service offerings this Undas, they have commissioned tricycle drivers in selected areas nationwide to offer free tricycle rides for commuters going to the cemetery on October 31 and November 1, 2017. They have painted the tricycles in color pink, to keep the spirit light in the midst of Undas traffic.

The Tents will be in color PINK so they are easily recognizable and noticeable; you will not miss it.

In thanksgiving of our colorful years in the DeathCare Industry, we will have a Eucharistic Celebration on October 29, 2017 (Sunday) at the Talitha Kum Healing Mass on TV which will be aired 8:00AM in PTV4 (formely NBN 4) It will be attended by em,ployees, planholders and officers of St. Peter.
IF I DIE
I’d love to be cremated. I saw it as the cheapest option, and it doesn’t eat up too much space of land. We all turn to dust, getting inside a casket and being buried is a waste of space. (My opinion) Throw me in the ocean. Flush me in the toilet. Because what matters most is how you’ll remember me. At least when cremated my ashes can be up on display in the house. Where you can see me always. Haha
