Every time I visit a place, the first thing I need to see is their church. That’s why as you can see in most of my entries here I featured the different churches of the places I’ve explored here in Cebu province. I don’t know, it seems like there is a magnetic force the draws me near to this kind of edifices. Then I just find my eyes feasting the beauty of the golden structure.
One of the good architectural designs I’ve seen in a church is the St Catherine’s Church in Carcar City. The church was built in 1859 during the Augustinian Friars and it is the second oldest church in Cebu. St Catherine’s Church was named after the town’s patron saint St. Catherine’s of Alexandria. The design of the church is admiSt Catherine’s Churchred for its Byzantine architecture, Greco-Roman altar and twin bell towers.
Every November 25th the town attracts thousands of devotees & visitors from different walks of life to pay homage to our Saint Catherine’s of Alexandria. Today the church stands historically on the top of the hill with peeled paints, rotten woods and cracked foundations, to the point of dilapidation. People noticed the changed of its physical structure but these defects did not change the profound devotion to the Blessed Mother.
