This is one of the best churches I’ve ever since here in Cebu. I do apologize because my memory doesn’t serve me right that I can’t really recall the exact town where this church is located. If anyone of you know the town down south please let me know.
I took these photos while on our way to Sumilon Island. Due to nature’s call we dropped by a gasoline station to pee and refuel our service. It was the owner of the gasoline station who suggested to visit the abandoned church.
I can see that indeed this magnificent infrastructure was a bit for quite sometime. But today, it’s undergoing a total face lift.
Malapascua Island is blessed with pristine waters and nice, fine , white sand shoreline. Though I’ve seen countless numbers of tourists visiting the magnificent island, yet I haven’t seen any security guards moving around to check and make sure that the place is risk-free. However, dogs are everywhere. Dogs seemed so friendly and accommodating. They will walk along with you. These dogs are so lovely to look at, though I am not a pet lover really.
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.
Been searching all my life.
Wandering and lost.
Trying to find an answer
Will I can find someone to call mine?
Unexpectedly our paths cross
Without saying a word
We just stared
And gave each others a grin.
From then on
I long to see you
More and more
I think of you…
Now I finally knew
In you, my heart
Find an answer..
So, care to be mine?
During my recently concluded trip down south of Cebu, I came across this marker situated within the town plaza. In fact, the marker is fronting the town hall of Argao. This marker is considered to be the oldest electrical post in Argao. The e-post was erected circa 1927. It’s a clear manifestation that the architectural structures long before were of good quality that can last up to several decades.
