|Beautiful Loboc church, now in heaps of rubble|
I've photographed several of the churches that I can only see in the news now as heaps of ruins. Though I belong to another denomination now, I have deep admiration for these places of worship, their history, their heritage, and their importance to the Boholanos and the Filipinos in general.
For a rundown of the status of some of the churches, please follow this link to cultural advocate and writer, Edeliza Macalandag's piece for Rappler.com.
