El Nido : Parish Church of Saint Francis of Assissi

by lakwatserong tatay

There's one thing and place that i wouldn't really missed out to go, when im travelling to different places. I would really spent some time of peace and being quite for a moment, and that's the church, in every places i've been, this is the place that i would always go, i love to take shots of it, aside from asking for some guidance and blessing for that trip. I really love to make story of it, know where it started, its either a new or old churches, but specially if that church was given a historical marker by our Historical Institute, i would really love to take some pictures around of it and know its background history.
Parish Church of St. Francis of Assissi, El Nido
Parish Church of St. Francis of Assissi is located in the heart of the town of El Nido. Where also business area arise. Different business establishment likes carinderia, souvenir shops and travel & tours stalls.
Front of the Church
Most of the people from El Nido is Roman Catholic like the rest of our country. There are two parishes inside the municipality: the Parish of Saint Francis of Assissi, which serves the part of Western El Nido and the Parish of Santa Putenciana, which serves the Eastern and Northern part of El Nido and underlying areas of Linapacan and Taytay. Both of the parishes is under Vicariate of Taytay. We did not able to see the Parish of Santa Putenciana....

Most of the people here in El Nido belongs to Catholic as i've said and some of the locals belongs to other Christian denominations such as Baptist, Iglesia ni Cristo, Seventh-day Adventist and other Protestant churches. As of now there are also growing numbers of migrants, who are engaged in Islamic Faith, from southern part of Palawan and parts of Mindanao.
