Old Brick Wall

Construction of the brick church (Sta. Rita de Cascia Church) is said to have started in 1892 by the Jesuits and finished in 1895 at the present location as the original wooden church near the coast was eventually destroyed by an encroaching sea. The lower level is made of bricks while the upper level made of wood. Two wooden belfries stood at the sides and three altars were installed.

During World War II, the guerrillas hastily burned the church because Japanese soldiers were stationed there. After the war, only the stone structure was left standing. (Source)

One thought on “Old Brick Wall”

  1. I used to study church construction in the past. Bricks have been widely utilized to construct religious structures for about 10,000 years due to their excellent strength. In fact, church fundraising with bricks makes the perfect option for a church building expansion, walkway, church patio, garden, or even a memorial wall.
