Our Lady of Sorrows Parish Church details

If you would notice, most of the churches that I feature in my Visita Iglesia articles are century-old churches. To date, I have featured only two modern-day churches - Nature's Church and St. Therese of the Child Jesus. I blogged those churches because of their unique structural designs. (You can click on the links to check them out.)

Beautiful stained glass windows

That is not the case for this church. Our Lady of Sorrows Parish Church has but a humble typical modern-day structural design. It doesn't have a majestic-looking facade, a towering bell tower, and an ornately designed retablo. So what makes the church stand out?

The belltower of Our Lady of Sorrows Parish Church

For the history buffs, the answer to that question is but an FYI trivia. For 8/10 Filipinos however, this church never existed. (not up until now that they have read this article.) For your information, Our Lady of Sorrows Parish Church played a very important role in the history of the Philippines. This church is the venue where two important historical figures were unified through the sanctity of marriage. (Still, don't know who they are? Ok here are some more hints.)

Former President Cory and Senator Ninoy tied the knot here.

These two would then have 5 children. one of whom would become a senator like his deceased father and later on would become the President of the Philippines like his deceased mother. With these hints, you'd probably guessed it right. The historical figures that I'm talking about are none other than Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr. and Corazon "Cory" Aquino. Their son who was once a senator and then the 15th President of the Philippines is none other than Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III.
