The Church


Before deciding, Ian and I have been to San Agustin Church, we spent some time looking around the place and getting feel the church. We didn't really have any sort of criteria except that we want to feel the joy in our heart. So finally, when we visit NSSH, this was the one that really made our hearts skip a beat. We felt an instant connection with the place and I for one felt somewhat teary-eyed going inside the church.

We love this church very much! We usually attend mass here together. To tell you honestly, ever since I was a child, I want to get married in this church. NSSH is a jubilee church and this is where I grow up and know God better. I served here for almost 15 years (Jr. CWL and Legion of Mary) and I can say na this is "THE ONE" for us. I know the staffs very well, very accommodating and very friendly.

This church is not as big as the other churches in Metro Manila but it is definitely has one of the most beautiful altar we've seen so far!  Located right smack at the central business district of Makati, The National Shrine of the Sacred Heart is an artistic fusion of post modern and classic interiors thoughtfully designed to complement elegance, and accentuate comfort with solemnity of worship. It’s a perfect place to take your solemn vow. NSSH is fully air-conditioned and has sufficient parking space for all the guest. The ambiance of this church is also the reflection of our personalities - very comfortable, personal, intimate and homey type. This is the way we want our ceremony to be! Perfect! Additional, you can actually have a full hour for the ceremony and an additional 15-30 minutes to take pictures in the altar with your friends, have a properly exit as well as time to packed up things. Kudos!

I could actually imagine myself walking down the aisle and I could see my family, relatives and friends sitting along those comfortable seats while smiling at me. Nothing more perfect than NSSH, I tell you. Please join us in praying that it won't rain on our Wedding Day! 

Note to remember: October 02, 2009, The National Shrine of Sacred Heart of Jesus was declared a JUBILEE SHRINE by Archbishop of Manila; Cardinal Gaudencio B. Rosales.
