St. Benedict's

St.Benedict’s Church was founded in 1910. There will be a centennial celebration this coming year! The Church, built in 1942, and is one of the oldest buildings in Besao, as it is one of the only buildings that survived the bombing during World War II. The Japanese made the church and its rectory their home base in the mountains during their occupation of Northern Luzon.
This is a picture of the gate to my house. As you can see, the church is very close. It takes about thirty seconds from front door to pew!
