This is an important place for the Aquino family. The former President Cory Aquino seek temporary refuge during the February 1986 EDSA People Power. She considered this as safe haven .

A great place to be alone with the Lord. Usual routine people brings eggs by the dozen or tray to ask for a good weather or rain.

One of my favorite churches even before and this is where I just kneel and pray whenever I need guidance and enlightenment. I feel so light after each visit. You can either light a candle, write your petition and special intentions there and bring eggs as offering.

The is place near Cebu Business Park along Salinas Drive. A nice and quiet place to pray and meditate. This is the place where Pres. Cory Aquino seek refuge before the EDSA Revolution.

I was just intrigued to see this place, which is not too far from the Cebu Business Park, for the main reason that this was the monastery where former President Corazon Aquino took refuge in during the EDSA revolution in 1986. For that single historical significance alone, the trip is worth the while. But more than that, the place provides... More

Mass here is almost always solemn. The ambience is wonderful. The altar is beautiful. Although the church has modernized, they still try to keep it traditional in so many ways.
