Every weekend when I pass by the site, I'm just amazed at how the construction is coming together beautifully.
In the recent past, the parish of the Sacred Heart celebrated mass in the basement of their new but unfinished building. I wondered then whether funds were sufficient to complete the project. After all it is not uncommon for a parish to hold mass in a partially completed structure. The mass as it turned out was only (in part) to celebrate the coming of the Pontiff in Manila, hence, construction resumed and masses were moved back to the old chapel shortly after the Pope left the country.
So now that the construction is again is in full swing, I set out to see up close the progress of the massive church project and here's my report. (Partial set of images)
The blog is about the Philippines... the less photographed side of it. My hope is that as I develop the series, the story I tell about trivial life in the country resonates with its readers.
