Its actually too big for the usual chapel that we see everywhere but too short too for the usual church that we see around. The height though makes for its church-like stance. Its one modern air-conditioned house of worship. While I actually have yet to see those air-conditioners being switched on, I could see very clear signs that it is constantly and properly maintained. I even get to thinking that this should be the size and make of churches. I mean it is big enough vertically so you don't feel cramped inside even when the church is filled to full capacity, yet the altar is not that far and you can still see the facial expression of the priest while doing his homily!
Upstairs? Well yes, there is a big full sized choir-loft just above the equally big main door. And it is an even nicer place to perch on and view the whole insides of this chapel. Haven't seen one yet, but this must be a very lovely and intimate setting for a wedding – the type where there would probably be just a hundred or less in attendance, that is!
Go see the place folks, at least before the canonization. An employee tells me that this was the first chapel dedicated by the church to Pedro Calungsod spearheaded by Cardinal Vidal and was consecrated in December 2002. Hmm, so it has been standing tall and beautiful for almost a decade now.
