My World#74 (Philippine Churches Part 6): Church of San Juan Bautista

This is the church where our national hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal, was baptized. The church was established in 1779. It has a beautiful glass mosaic of the first Filipino saint, San Lorenzo Ruiz, by its entrance door. Photo of the saint here.

In recent years, the church has added these sculptures on its front yard:

Jesus by the well with a sign that says "The Well of Renewal"

i visited this church and the Rizal Shrine last year or 2 years ago. it's always to great to see places that somehow shaped our history as a nation.
