St. Ignatius of Loyola Parish Church (Tetuan, Zamboanga City)

11th church stop. the most striking feature of the church for me is the ceiling... i love how grand it look when you're standing at the end of the aisle. :-) we tried going up the bell tower and even got a better view of the ceiling. 

i don't have any connection with this church except for one or two instances back in highschool when instead of the parish priest going to our school for the first friday mass, we were the ones who went to the church. i can still remember the huge balete tree in the church's courtyard. it's not there anymore, after they renovated the church.

very simple when viewed from outside. :-)
more photos after the jump. Please click "Read more"

St. Ignatius' statue in the church's courtyard
closer view of the altar.
this one's at the baptism area. So far during this visita iglesia i've seen 2 baptism areas (one at the Cathedral and then this one). I wonder if this is still being used... because so far for the baptisms i've attended (including my paolo's), it had always been some kind of mass baptism hehe.

stained glass of the Divine Mercy.

this is the stained glass that can be seen at the front of the church... i was able to take photo from the inside when we went up through the stairs leading to the bell tower.

Lourdes' grotto in the church's courtyard... i think this is where the balete used to be... well at least i assume it's this one. :D
