Thank you Lord for making me see Davao

At the center of town, right across City Hall, this Catholic Church is a monument of the piety and devotion of Davaoenos.

The cathedral hasn't changed much, except for the altar (which is not distinguishable from new and ornate altars churches have been acquiring in recent decades) since I last visited it in the 1990s. There are a lot to be improved in the cathedral in terms of repairs and cleaning.

We had a chance to hear mass in San Pedro Cathedral during our stay since it was near our hotel. Good thing is they have schedule for "english" because we are from Manila. Very convenient because there were fastfood chains nearby where you can eat after mass

The church has a nice architecture where the pews are in a circular arrangement that gives a perfect emphasis on the altar.

If you are catholic, this is the best church to visit, it's centrally located near City Hall. Just a walking distance from Grand Menseng Hotel.

The priest was right on spot when he noticed that many tourists attended mass on that Sunday afternoon. This was mainly because of the chance to attend a mass and at the same time visit many other attractions.

Part of the city tour is a visit to San Pedro Cathedral. After my trip to Garden Island of Samal, this was my only time to thank God for all HIs blessings and pray for my personal intentions. Got so caught up with tour and sights in Samal. Liked the interior of this historic church.
