The Shrine that Prays with You

The Church's architecture is Modern Romanesque. The main architect was Cesar Concio and his associate Jesse Bontoc. They had planned to build a higher church with a bell tower. But because of its proximity to the airport, civil aeronautic regulations prevented them from carrying out their plan.


The architecture of the shrine was designed to contribute to an ambiance of prayer and devotion. Thus, it can be said that the shrine prays with the people. Discover the meaning of each of the part of the architecture of the shrine.
