Thie Catholic Church is beautiful on the outside but it is its work serving the Filipino people including Manileanos that I admire. The priests are very diligent and caring. Attending Mass here is a must, even if you are not Catholic.

a beautiful church, the walls seem to talk to you, but it looks rundown but worth a visit! Be careful of beggars around the church.

With the scaffolding recently dismantled, the restored stonework on the Church's exterior now looks absolutely. Great to see the Catholic community maintaining such an historic Church with its deep historical and cultural ties to Philippines, notwithstanding its continuing consecrated use as a home for Jesus Christ and His many followers.

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.
