I’m not a devout Catholic but I really admire Catholic Churches. For me, these houses of worship are Architectural wonders. They showcase the best in building design and aesthetics.
I stumbled upon the Shrine of St. Therese of the Child Jesus in Newport City, Pasay, when I attended the movie screening of “Breaking Dawn Part 2”. It was held at Newport Cinema, Resorts World Manila, Pasay City. I came early to the venue and decided to tour around the vicinity.
Behold, there’s the Shrine of St. Therese of the Child Jesus right beside the Newport Lighthouse. On the facade of the shrine you’ll the statues of Filipino saints Pedro Calungsod and Lorenzo Ruiz. The interior of the shrine is aligned with stained glass.
There is a wonderful garden at both sides of the shrine which is ideal for a quite time. This church is definitely not crowded with worshippers and it looks very elite. I visited the shrine’s website and learned that their goal is to be the center of devotion for St. Therese of the Child Jesus in the Philippines.
