Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, Mahinhin cor. Mayumi St.

I’ve been to the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish before for Visita Iglesia — a yearly tradition that my family (and many other Filipino families) usually do during the Holy Week. I don’t remember what year it was, but it definitely was part of one of the seven churches we visit as part of the tradition. I’m also quite familiar with the church, because it’s near a the Claret School, which I also used to visit for Taekwondo practice.

The Church is circular, and it reminds me of the Parish of the Holy Sacrifice in UP in some respects and St. Paul the Apostle Parish in others. It’s quite a simple church, and what I particularly like is that at the wall behind the altar, is a pronouncement of faith: “Ikaw ang aking pag-asa. Ikaw ang aming buhay at muling pagkabuhay. (You are my hope. You are our life and our resurrection.).” Truly, a reminder of who Jesus Christ is in our life.
