My friend was very vocal about visiting the San Pedro Calungsod Church in Cebu. My attention got also caught since I heard good things about the church specially its structure plus the fact that it was the church that “Kaye Abad and Paul Jake Castillo” wedding happened. Luckily, it came true. We went there.
San Pedro Calungsod is just a few walk away from the SM Seaside City in Cebu. The structure of the church is quite different from a normal church. It’s like a huge white domino standing with each other.

The first time I saw it I can say I’m amazed, such a beautiful structure. You know the feeling that you would always want to attend a mass at this church not just because it is in an isolated area and is air-conditioned, but of the church uniqueness and tranquility. Noise and concentration will not be an issue there. You can silently shout your prayers to the Lord without obstruction. There’s something in the place that you just want to stay there, just feel calm and peace.

We attended the 7:30 a.m mass on a Sunday schedule. I commended the one and only soloist and at the same time the pianist for he did a very good job. He gave justice to every song he sang and played the piano right. The priest is good. He delivered the gospel well for us to understand.
So I am recommending you guys to visit the San Pedro Calungsod Church. Add it to your travel bucket list. One stay here will make you want to come back again. Praise and thanks the Lord through the intercession of San Pedro Calungsod.
By the way guys, if you are looking for a rest room, it is found in the underground portion of the church.
Be blessed everyone. See you in my next ann-venture.
