They renovated Sta Ana into this beautiful work of art over the past years. Gone are the dull grey and white walls to be replaced by cobblestones and rustic brick walls. If you like visiting churches, visit Sta Ana Church.

Came here for a christening service. Inside the church there are many murals depicting the life of Jesus. Well worth a visit

It is a baroque themed church. The gold gild and chintz were generously applied inside incl the retablo above the altar plus the fact that it is airconned,makes it my favorite church.There is order and silence althroughout.

My travels to Davao almost always end on a Sunday and first is my agenda for departure day is the early morning mass at Sta Ana. It is a short distance from my hotel (on a good day one could walk) and taxi drivers are sure to know where this is. The church had been renovated and is now air-conditioned.... More

Sundays bring us to the Sta Ana Shrine for a Cebuano mass at 7 am. It is alright even if I do not speak a word or maybe can speak a few. The parish priest tries to also translate the key words and themes in English. The Church is beautiful. My husband who used to go to mass here as... More

My wife is a life-long resident of Davao and this is her favorite house of prayer. It takes us over 1 hour to travel here and we visit on a regular basis.

From an old art deco church, it has transformed into a lovely, modern air conditioned parish. The altar is also better now. With the heat outside, this makes praying and meditation more solemn and conducive.

I used to hear mass here when we live nearby. The church has evolved since then into a beautiful church. The altar is very beautiful. The church is Air condtioned so it is conducive to hear mass during summer time. Parking area is a bit Of problem because there are many church goers. Overall, it is worth a visit for.
