My Visit to the Church:

In 2008 i had the Privilege and Honor to see the Loboc Church with my very eyes. The Church stood proudly beside the Loboc River, its reflection mirrored in the waters of the River. I would have not imagined that my first time to see her in her glory would be the last. The morning Earthquake of October 15,2013 virtually destroyed the Church, sending its once glorious facade crashing to the grounds, its walls weakened and its foundations shaken. I hope and pray that from the rubble, she would once again rise with her glory restored and take her rightful place among the Great Old Heritage Churches of the Country.
