After we went to the Antipolo Cathedral, we headed to another church which is way more stunning and more peaceful. It’s the Transfiguration of Christ Church located in Brgy San Roque, Antipolo City. It was a huge church but during that time, the church was close but the people there warmly welcomed us. The landescape and the overall exterior of the church is truly stunning and is definitely an ideal place to have your wedding.Before reaching the actual facade of the church, you’ll have to pass through huge number of steps. Don’t worry they also have a high wheelchair ramps on both side for disabled ones.
If the Antipolo Cathedral is already three centuries old, The Transfiguration of Christ Church is relatively new. It is a new parish in the Diocese of Antipolo, having been canonically erected on December 12, 2002.
A closer view to the church’s facade.
Here’s the opposite view from the front of the church. See how impressive the landscape is? Before entering the church’s premises, you will be welcomed with this huge concrete replica depicting the Transfiguration of Jesus Christ. They also have a huge colombarium and memorial chapels inside. The colombarium was closed at that time but we managed to see their memorial chapels which are so new, they are air conditioned, and has some basic church amenities inside.
Just took a photo of a flower growing near one of their chapels. As you enter the church, you will be welcomed by a replica of Saint John Paul II in front of the church’s nave opposite the main altar. As you can see, there are scaffolding inside the church simply because it is currently being renovated. It actually looks like a mansion and a church in one. The view outside is even more stunning. After spending time praying and touring, we decided to hit our next destination but the weather is not really cooperating well so we headed back to Pasay to stop over at MOA.
