One of a kind Catholic Church. So peaceful place of worship and to be in communion with our Creator. There’s a small chapel beside the main church that’s also very nice. Altough they have limited parking on the street and at the back.

The church, when we first visited it, was beautiful inside yet simple outside. Perfect to be called a nature church, because of its landscape plants and flowers that will make you feel relaxed. Must visit :)

Nature is the main theme of this church. Entering the gate, the church was not immediately visible as the grounds were surrounded by trees and heavy greenery. All those flora was soothing and calming - very conducive to worship.

The first thing that caught my eye when I first saw the church were the stone and tree stump seats that function as pews. They were very welcoming and were just begging to be sat on.

Once inside, I marveled at the huge, sloping roof made of local plants, probably anahaw leaves - traditionally used for roofing a long time ago and still sometimes used in the provinces. Capiz lanterns were designed creatively as lighting fixtures.

Logs and pieces of wood and stones were extensively used inside the church. The altar was made of what looked like marble slabs and more wood (driftwood) and stones. The pillars and beams were made from tree trunks, probably from old mango trees as the place used to be a mango orchard.

This church is a fully active parish church with all Catholic services and sacraments offered. They even have a side building for funeral wakes and a stone-walled garden ossuary. Perfect for mediation and praying when there are not much people around.

But since most of the materials are fodder for fires, measures should be taken that accidents are avoided that can ruin this beautiful church.

This place is different from the regular concrete constructed churches in manila. Its quiet, touch of nature and the ambiance of having your own reflection while praying hearing only the Bamboos, Leaves, Birds.

I hope they lessen children running around but overall this place is remarkable.

Amazing work of art constructed in the worship center, enabling the brethren congregating in the church feel God's presence.

It’s a nice place but since it’s an open space a lot of kids run around which lessens the solemnity of the mass

This church is made of local materials like Anahaw leaves for the roof, varnished old wood for the chairs, an altar with natural plants and glowing water when it is raining and fresh air. This is one if the famous tourist place in Las Piñas City inside Moonwalk subdivision. There are also small chapel and venue for retreat inside the church compound.

A place of prayer & reflection. There's mass every Sunday and 6PM everyday. When my mind is a whiz and problems are heavy I find solace in this place. I know God speaks in silence. I always feel better after quiet time here.

I have been hearing good things about this church. Good thing I had a chance to see it when I attended a wedding as a principal sponsor. I love the indigenous interior. It is not only a church but they also have a reception area good for 100 pax. or probably even more.

When you want to deepen your relationship with God whilst getting in touch with nature, this is by far the best place. I'm a local and I'm still amazed by our "nature church", Mary Immaculate Parish. The seats are not the usual seats you see in most churches, as the seats are real tree stumps, one tree stump good for one person. The air is cool; possibly due to lots of huge trees surrounding the place, and also because the roof is made of hay. I recall it withstood a huge storm once, and was restored back to it's beauty.
