Cagayan de Oro Churches Part 1

From Metro Manila we fly to Mindanao to Cagayan de Oro City, the "City of Golden Friendship".

Slide1 (Small)
Slide2 (Small)

Slide4 (Small)
The Cathedral's wide, spacious, airy and well-lighted interior

Slide3 (Small)
Jubilee markers...the Church may have played a pivotal role in the Jubilee celebrations of 2000. In this picture as well is an image of the Dolorosa found near the entrance and the schedule of masses.

Slide6 (Small)
Two chapels dedicated to Christ, (left side of photo) is the Chapel/altar for the Sacred Heart while the (right side of photo) is the Chapel for the Crucified Christ

Slide5 (Small)
Not your typical Pinoy Santo Entierro...

Slide7 (Small)
Beautiful stained glass windows decorating the Cathedral...if I remember it correctly, these were donated by a group of nuns from New York.

Slide8 (Small)
The Church is cross shaped wherein the main altar is in the intersection of the two lines forming the cross

Slide9 (Small)
The Blessed Sacrament found at the left side of the Cathedral

Slide10 (Small)
Mary as Queen of the Most Holy Rosary in Fatima and as the Immaculate Conception

Slide11 (Small)
Seems like the angels are gossiping...a rather folksy looking base

Slide12 (Small)
Blessed Pedro Calungsod and the Divine Mercy. I noticed that Blessed Pedro already has a strong following in the Visayas and Mindanao area...

Slide13 (Small)
An image of heaven (left side, Cathedral gardens). (Right side) An image of God the Father, something you rarely see in Churches.

Slide14 (Small)
Image collection of the Cathedral...they are all over the place

Slide15 (Small)
The Patron Saint and his relic...

Slide16 (Small)
The Miraculous image of Nuestra Senore de Kota. They say that when you place the image on the forehead of someone sick, that person will be healed

Slide17 (Small)
I assume to be the scene of the miraculous appearance of Our Lady of the Wall (Nuestra Senora de Kota)...hmmm GMP Alert!

Slide18 (Small)
Similar looking carroza's parked besides the Cathedral gardens...I wonder if the andas is what they use to process the small miraculous image of Nuesta Senora de Kota...
