Our Lady of Hope Parish, Pag-asa

Late post. We went to Our Lady of Hope Parish after volunteering at the National Children’s Hospital along with Coco and her friends. We’re both familiar with the parish, since one of our office mates got married there. (I didn’t attend the wedding, but I saw pictures.)

It’s very, very near SM North Edsa! I like how some SM malls (and Ayala malls) have mass schedules, but I think it’s always better to go to an actual church. It’s a very short walk from the Block. The Church can be seen from right behind it.

Here are pictures from the time we went there:

The first thing I noticed when I went in was, of course, the altar. It was intricately decorated (even as the crucifix was under repair). It isn’t a very large parish, but it wasn’t cramped for space during the mass time that we attended. It has a balcony up back for the choir and several other mass attendees. And there was also a second floor platform along the sides. Opposite the altar, hanging on the front of the balcony was a largish image of Jesus, with his arms spread out.

Outside the church itself to the right side is a much smaller brick chapel for adoration. The church is surrounded by a wall covered with vegetation. When we were there, there were parish groups having fundraising programs.
