A place where you can stop and pray in Laoag, Ilocos Norte. It is located beside the bridge and near the municipal hall.

Looked good from the outside, but couldn't go in because there was work going on inside. However, we did meet up with somebody from the religious school next door and they were extremely helpful.

I been to a few churches throughout Philippines and find them each unique and interesting but this goes have a certain appeal . The colors inside and the architecture of the ceiling are nice . Church is one block from sinking bell tower and two blocks from monopoly tabaco museum and Loag sign just walking distance
