Minor Basilica of the Immaculate
Manila Metropolitan Cathedral
story of the Manila Cathedral is
not only a story of the Church,
it is also a story of Intramuros,
a story of Manila, a story
of the Philippines. Manila Cathedral
is a time narrative; it is about
ruins and ravages, rising and restorations.
VITAL TO THE SUCCESSFUL realization of the Pondo ng Pinoy's vision is the role of another C—the CHURCH. The Church is the initiator. The Church is the motivator. The Church is the steward. In a powerful way, PnP gives a concrete picture of a Church for the poor, of a Church in action, of a Church that not only carries a pastoral function but carries out a social mission. It is a Church that cares. It is a Church that works for the people’s welfare.
