 New ceiling, new paint, no design

Last Maundy Thursday, 17 April 2014, me and my family made the visita iglesia down the southeast of Cebu and it was an opportunity for me to visit once again Oslob Church. I’m happy to say that, from what I saw, the church, which was gutted by fire last 26 March 08 is whole again. I’ve posted about the progress here before in this and this posts.

The roofing is done and the interior looks quite new. There were no traces of the fire. Instead, light blue ceiling with the central part showing a portion of the metal frames of the roof, modest sized paintings of saints, newly painted walls and a new dome.

The kumbento hasn’t been rebuilt, however. It is still in ruins except for a small section which has been enclosed and now is a quadrilateral structure that looks like a meeting area. Didn’t get other details as we didn’t linger long.

While the interior has been rebuilt, the ruins of the kumbento is still there. Nothing's new except for a building that was built at a section of the former structure
