The church is so big with a very high ceiling. It is a bit far from the main road so it's very quite and peaceful in this area. You can pray peacefully and give thanks to God for all the blessings

A modern church with an eccentric architecture, Christ the King Cathedral is Tagum's main church. Masses are heard here daily. The church actually resembles a castle from afar. It has also become a tourist and religius destination in the city.

Peaceful, and unique... I was told the Cathedral was built only a few years ago, but it is very "Art Deco" in style, and looks as though it might have been built almost a hundred years ago. I think it is a beautiful building, and...More
