San Pedro Calungsod Chapel, SRP Cebu


Our first stop was the San Pedro Calungsod Chapel at the SRP (South Road Properties). An article from Phil. Star stated that: "Designed by US-based architect Carlos Arnaiz, the Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod sits on an elevated 5,001 square meter lot within the SM Seaside Complex. It can accommodate up to 803 people.. It's pretty huge for a chapel, if I may say so.

The article continued to state that: "The Chapel was donated by Henry Sy, Sr. and Felicidad Sy to the Archdiocese of Cebu, and is dedicated to San Pedro Calungsod, the first Visayan saint, who is considered a role model for the youth. Martyred in Guam for his missionary work in 1672, he was beatified by Blessed Pope John Paul II on March 5, 2000. San Pedro Calungsod was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI at Saint Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican City last Oct. 21.

Here are pics of our group who embarked on a road trip to the south of Cebu to do our Visita Iglesia...
