Immaculate Conception Metropolitan Cathedral of Roxas City, Capiz




    This Cathedral is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary as Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. Many churches like this is found all over the country. This one is found in Roxas City, Capiz, Philippines.
December 8 is the feast day of Our Lady's immaculate conception and so is the city's religious fiesta. 

A renovation has been started on this church a few years ago, and at last, it is almost finished. I can't help being proud just by looking at it. It really is so much better now. But it looks like as if it is a hundred percent finished.  These photos were taken on Christmas Day 2011.
