This will be an ongoing series featuring Dominican built churches in the Philippines from the time of the friars’ arrival in 1587. I will start with 9 churches that are already part of my collection of art pieces.




Ave Maria is a publication dedicated to Catholics the world over. It will contain articles covering its 2000 years existence since the birth of Jesus Christ.
