Passi Church in Iloilo is, unlike its counterparts like San Joaquin, Miag-ao and Molo lacks the intricacy of details or the height that identifies these churches. What it does have are just some minor bas relief details and massive buttresses.

The current facade’s main entrance has the Augustinian order’s emblem at the center, just atop the main entrance and below the oculus and almost lost in the fl

The belfry located at the top of the original entrance contain three bells with two from the Spanish colonial period. What makes this two bells interesting is that these were cast by a certain J.D. Rey in Iloilo in October 1872 and were intended for this town. The third bell is a small one, probably 20th century with no markings and rusting.
