Upon entering you'll see people selling eggs. They say that this is the offering for the Saint. We went here to ask guidance for our law school and bar exams. When donating, don't bring eggs, i think they have too much of it already.

Santa Clara is famous for offering eggs to the monastery and writing your prayers with it. They also offer blessing of religious artifacts. Church mass is held every early morning and late afternoon.
