Binondo -- being the very first Chinatown in the world -- is expected to be a bustling commercial center of Manila, with thousands of Chinese establishments (including restaurants, shops, malls, hotels, banks, etc.). But what one may not be expecting to find there is this church that offers a quiet place for prayer, meditation and spiritual recharging. Well, its foundation originally served to cater to the spiritual needs of the early Chinese who embraced the Christian faith and who decided to stay or live for good in the area. Today, stepping into this church transports you to a totally different world, very distinct from its worldly or mundane surroundings. It's worth visiting not only for its rich history, but also for its beautiful architecture and richly decorated interior. Today it's even more convenient to visit the place now that the surrounding areas have been cleaned and cleared of street vendors as part of the current city mayor's clearing operations. Thumbs up!

It’s a beautiful structure with a long history of construction, destruction, and reconstruction. I felt like I was inside a drum rather than a place of worship. Please improve the acoustic as it was hard to understand the whole Liturgy of the Word. The echoes were so bad.

This church is near our hotel so stopped in to tour the facility. A very nice old church in use today. Located in the older section of town with a lot of homeless surrounding th area. We try to give them food rather than money and most seemed very apprecitive. Definitely worth the time if in this area of town.

It was Mama Mary Birthday Anniversary and at the same time our wedding anniversary. We opted to hear mass at Binondo Church due its proximity to our Hotel. Pros Available Parking be sure to park legitimate parking spaces to avoid apprehension even on sundays where there are no authorities on site. With huge fan to ventilate the huge area With usher to guide for available set and ensure that recipient of the Holy Eucharist are properly dress ( shawl are given to cover the legs for those shorts and arms for those wearing sleeveless and strap dress/blouse. Ensure silence inside the church With TV for mass goers view the reading and songs and able to participate in the mass. Cons The choirs sound system is too loud. Choir singing cannot be heard. In my opinion the genre used by choir not conservative or religious to warrant meditation or time of prayer which most the big Catholic Churches are observing. Overall church sound system needs revisitation.. With echo. Is current sound system does not have the actual audio reproduction. We had heard time listening to the Priest's homily
