The church looks old but that gives the beauty and the identity of the era it was erected.
The facade gives the baroque impression of a design. the interior is equally nice and well kept. Not big but it is enough for the residents around.

The Malate church is a beautiful church build in baroque style. Its dedicated to "Our Lady of Remedies", the patroness of child birth. Theres a beautiful statue of the Holy Mary at the Altare. Take a moment here to rest and see all the beauty. When i was there they were doing some reconstruction works but you still could go inside and have a peaceful moment. Right across the church you have a square with fountains and behind those you have Manilla bay.

I chose this church for my wedding. I can't help comparing it with other churches I visited before making a decision.
It has no airconditioning system which does not make it a good place to visit or attend mass in the afternoon on any hot summer day. But, this quaint church makes up for this through its old world charm.

If you are to get married here, the church staff, especially Ms. Lea, makes your preparation challenging yet very much organized and well-prepared. Because they will provide details regarding policies and ask for your church song lists, you have to really sit down with your fiance before making final decisions. The advantage lies on helping you envision the details on your wedding day.
Fr. Kevin is also very hands on when handling orientation on church policies and requirements.

This review is quite late. Although the Our Lady of Remedies Church is located in the red-light district of Manila it is still a popular venue for weddings.

Visited this church this afternoon. It was very warm outside and nice therefore to relax inside. I took a seat and paused for a while.

Very cool. It has nice stained-glass in the windows reflecting the roles of the Virgin Mary. There are also for stained-glass windows to the four evangelists Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

The font is in the north transept, above which is a stained glass window of the baptism of Christ by John the Baptist.

This church dates from 1863, when it was rebuilt after an earthquake. However, there was a church on the site previously. Worth a look around as part of Manilas rich heritage.

Popularly known as Malate Church, this institution has seen generations of Filipino Catholics baptised, confirmed, married and interred at its premises. In spite of its location (flanked by some of the busiest streets of Manila), it is quiet inside and conducive to contemplation. Students of the nearby UP Manila come here to pray before their board exams. It has an old world vibe about it but is quite popular among the young. It has been recently renovated but still maintains its old world charm.

We hear mass during sundays and walking inside "Our Lady of Remedies" or aka Malate Church gives u this feeling of starting your journey coinciding with remembering a dark past of Philippine history. It has been a witness during the japanese occupation (1941-1945) where Columban priests have not escaped the brutality of war. Please check some memorabilia on display showing Malate Church History located near the Altar (right side) and while attending sunday mass you will be delighted/touched with how the choir interpret mass songs.

The centuries old Malate Church is one of the best kept churches in the country. It is now under the care of the Columban Fathers.

One of the churches we included in our Visita Iglesia last Maundy Thursday is the Our Lady of Remedies in Malate, Manila. Initially built in the 15th century, the church was destroyed by an earthquake and rebuilt by the Augustinian fathers in 1934. The facade is an interesting interplay of Muslim design and Mexican Baroque. In the main altar is the statue of Our Lady of Remedies, well known among mothers whose devotion to her emanates from well recorded miracles of sick children who became well through her intercession. Somehow, this historical church has also drawn a big following among the laity coming from different parts of the city. Arriving in the church at past 7 p.m., we were welcomed by a huge crowd of worshippers observing the Holy Week activities. The whole courtyard was full of people, young and old alike, families or groups of teen agers, or members of church organizations. The church interiors depicts its baroque architectural style with many pillars and made of big stone walls. It fronts Rajah Sulayman park which in itself is interesting with a dancing colored fountain that hypnotizes the onlookers. Indeed, Our Lady of Remedies Church is not only the center of faith in Manila, it is also a historical treasure.
