Binondo Church

Binondo Church is also known as Minor Basilica of St. Lorenzo Ruiz is located in Binondo, Manila. Founded by the Dominican priests in 1596, Binondo Church is one of the oldest places of Christian worship in the Philippines. It was administered by the Secular Priests in 1768, returned to Dominican Administration in 1822 and back to Secular Priests in 1898.
The maintenance is largely funded by the Catholic Chinese community, many of whom reside or operate businesses in neighboring Chinatown. Masses are held in Filipino, in Chinese dialects (Mandarin, Hokkien), and in English.

San Agustin Church - Manila

San Agustín Church is the oldest existing church in the Philippines. It is an essential tourist destination in Manila for those who are interested in Philippine history and culture.

The present structure is actually the third to stand on the site. It has 14 side chapels and a trompe-l'oeil ceiling. Up in the choir loft are the hand-carved 17th-century seats made of molave, a beautiful tropical hardwood.

The San Agustín Church lies inside the walled city of Intramuros located in the capital city Manila. It is the first European stone church to be built in the Philippines designed in Spanish architectural structure. It also houses the legacies of the Spanish conquistadores, Miguel López de Legazpi, Juan de Salcedo and Martín de Goiti who are buried in a tomb underneath the church.

San Sebastian Church (Google Images)







The Basilica Minore de San Sebastián, better known as San Sebastián Church, is a Roman Catholic minor basilica in Manila, the Philippines. It is the seat of the Parish of San Sebastian and the National Shrine of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.

Completed in 1891, San Sebastián Church is noted for its architectural features. An example of the revival of Gothic architecture in the Philippines, it is the only all-steel church or basilica in Asia. It has also been implausibly reputed to be the first prefabricated building in the world, and more plausibly claimed as the only prefabricated steel church in the world. In 2006, San Sebastian Church was included in the Tentative List for possible designation as a World Heritage Site. It was designated as a National Historical Landmark by the Philippine government in 1973.

San Sebastián Church is under the care of The Order of the Augustinian Recollects, who also operate a college adjacent to the basilica. It is located at Plaza del Cármen, at the eastern end of Claro M. Recto Street, in Quiapo, Manila.

The National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima Valenzuela city,Philippines





The First National Shrine in the Diocese of Malolos shrine



On June 12, 1976, the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), headed by then Julio Cardinal Rosales, raised the honors of the church, when on their semi-annual assembly in Baguio declared the parish church of Our Lady of Fatima in Valenzuela a National Shrine. The great honor imposed a greater responsibility, for the parish must lead in spreading the urgent message exhorted by Our Lady in 1917. This was a signal honor to the parish, a strong moral booster to a community faced with such a herculean challenge, but with its own corresponding responsibility for it bestowed on the young parish the task of leading the promotion of the devotion to Our Lady of Fatima.

Tourist Site and Pilgrim Church



Due to the increasing prestige of the National Shrine during that time, on April 24, 1982 and December 10, 1982, Tourism Minister Jose D. Aspiras declared it as a Pilgrim Church and Tourist Site, respectively. During the Jubilee Year celebration in 2000 and the Year of the Holy Rosary in 2002 to 2003, the National Shrine was among the designated pilgrim churches in the Diocese of Malolos. It also hosted several diocesan Marian celebrations such as the Diocesan Marian Pilgrimage on May 13, 2006, a Marian Year and on the dawn of January 5, 2008 which gathered thousands of Marian devotees in the diocese and around the country



Center of the Devotion to Our Lady of Fatima in the Philippines



The World Apostolate of Fatima (WAF) National Center is also located at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima. This organization is a Public International Association of the Faithful of Pontifical Right established by the Holy See on October 7, 2005. It is also a movement of the Church with millions of members all around the world who follow the requests made by Our Lady to the three children in 1917. In 1989, the delegates to the national convention of the WAF held in Cebu City unanimously approved the transfer of the National Center of the WAF to the National Shrine. Its affiliate organizations are the Youth Apostolate of Fatima (YAF) and Children Apostolate of Fatima (CAF).



Home of the National Pilgrim Image (NPI) of Our Lady of Fatima



The National Pilgrim Image of Our Lady of Fatima is one of the original statues blessed by Pope Paul VI and was later brought to the Philippines and crowned as the National Pilgrim Image during the launching of the National Marian Year in December 1984. It was subsequently entrusted to Bahay Maria for care and protection until it was permanently handed to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima on October 17, 1999. The Pilgrim Image was the forefront of the “EDSA People Power Revolution” in 1986 where Our Lady, through the image, showed her maternal protection to our people. This is the reason why the image of Our Lady of Fatima is considered as the universal image of peace. During the solemn rites of her turn-over to the National Shrine, the signing of an “Agreement for Acceptance of Responsibility for Care and Protection” was also made. Since then, the image has been a witness of numerous note-worthy events which shaped the history of the Church and the society.



Almost five decades since its establishment, people from different parishes and even dioceses continue to come, in leaps and bounds, to feel the solace, find comfort and direction, and experience peace as they pray, celebrate, and serve God. The National Shrine will never be what it is today, a Shrine of Peace, if not through that generous efforts and services rendered by many people in the past years. This community prays that the Lord Jesus Christ, through Our Lady of Fatima, will continue to transform this piece of land as a mirror of His face, of compassion, piety, and love, together with the Blessed Virgin Mary, our Mother and companion in our journey.
