A Beautiful Church with stunning architecture and Murals.
Feb 2019
A beautiful place of worship which is centrally situated in Makete, Manila. The architecture and statuary etc inside is stunning. A wonderful place to go to worship while on holiday, or just to sit and pray or reflect quietly. An oasis of peace and tranquility in the heart of bustling Manila. It can be quite busy though around the times services are being held.

Our Lady of the Abandoned Parish Quick Visit
Aug 2018 • Couples
Right across the street from the Marikina Shoe Museum is the old Marikina Church called Our Lady of the Abandoned Parish. It stood massively with the cars, trikes, cabs rushes by in the small streets surrounding it. We decided to check it out and see its architectural uniqueness and appreciate it alongside the its history.

The parish is Baroque in style characterized by a heavily fortified facade, large-scale ceiling paintings, and a dramatic central projection of the facade. It is well maintained from its columns, ceiling paintings, pulpits, and intricately designed altar.

The church suffered major damages during the tumultuous years of the Philippine–American War in the early 1900s. In 1957, it was restored and refurbished by Father Silvestre dela Cruz of Archdiocese of Manila with the help from various religious and civic organisations. It now enshrines one of Papal recognized images of the Virgin Mary venerated as miraculous.

A testament to the Filipino's devotion to Mother Mary

We marveled at the religious icons in the church while praying. The church is very silent in between church services. People drop by to pray silently.
