Pasay City: Our Lady of Sorrows Parish Church

Located in 2130 F.B. Harrison Street Pasay City, Our Lady of Sorrows Parish Church is a religious structure with a modern design.
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 retabolo. So what makes the church stand out?
The belltower
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.)
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. An their son who was once a senator and then the 15th President of the Philippines is none other than Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III.

To wrap up this article, I'll leave you with one more FYI trivia. 
-Did you know that the SOON TO BE most popular and the best blogger, adventurer and teacher was baptized in this church?

HAHAHA! You guessed it right!

Getting there:

From Manila, ride a jeep with a sign board Baclaran Mabini. Inform the driver to drop you off in front of the church.
