The church is well maintained. Although the structure is obviously quite old, there is no danger that the any part of the church might collapse any time soon. The floor and interiors, as well as exterior, of the church is very clean. Walking distance from Rizal Boulevard and fast food chains. Accessible to public transportation. In front of the Plaza.

As a traveler and father.. i visited the church on morning of my birthday with nowhere to ask for guidance and thanks. Spiritual healing works.. What the physical partner could never provide. God always gives me time.. time to heal woulds.. a good place of worship.

Went to the English mass on Sunday morning. The priest was a bit difficult to understand, but overall the mass was the same as any other Catholic church. The music was good, and the church not as crowded as the previous mass in Tagalog. Overall, a nice environment to spend time with prayer and meditation.

The church was nice and there was a grotto by the entrance to say prayers. The Philippines is dotted with these very nostalgic places of worship.

When ever i visit Dumaguete, i never fail to pass by here and pray. A modern architecture of a church. If you want an antique feel of a church and this is not a place to be. Truly a place of worship for Catholics.

The church provides solace and silence. Located besides the Belfry, city park, just a walk from the Rizal boulevard and market. The church is quite big and spacious and the altar is beautiful. Outside you can light a candle to Mama Mary for your prayers and petitions.

Since it was a Monday when we went there, the church was not filled with people giving us the chance to pray solemnly. I expected an ancient Cathedral but somehow this is not as old as I thought it would be. There are much older churches found in Bohol & Cebu.

There are lots of beggars outside and the fire from the candle area is so big I didn't dare light a candle anymore. The inside of the church is huge and holy but informational papers are scattered on the table right at the center of the entrance.

The church is photogenic. I specially like the figurines of saints at the entrance of the church. Very photogenic indeed. Its also nice to taste the local ice cream sold there. Its not gellato but it sure does take the heat off.
