Malate Church is located within the "red-light" district of Manila. Since this church is dedicated to Nuestra Señora de los Remedios (Our Lady of Remedies), the patroness of childbirth I think the location is fitting to remind people that abortion is a sin.

Most of the priests appear to be from Ireland, it is fun to hear the Irish accent among the Filipino. Beautiful old church. As far as I can tell, no aircon so keep that in mind.

Have monitors in which church-goers can follow the mass and pray along with the congregation. You have to go early for you to be able to be seated as the Church becomes packed. Had to visit this church as we used to come here every Sunday way back 1980's when we lived in Malate with our late Grandmother.

This church is dedicated to Nuestra Señora de Remedios, the patroness of childbirth. A baroque style architecture that can be seen close to the Plaza Rajah Soliman facing Manila Bay. The interior is elegant but not so big. The facade looks nice and should be restored looking the same. To look old is elegant not needed to be changed. Some... More
