Our Lady of The Immaculate Conception Cathedral

Again, I went down memory lane and visited the Immaculate Conception Cathedral.
I used to sketch its bell tower from my Grade 5 classroom where I got a good view of the Church. I loved First Friday Masses when I had to walk the long aisle for Offertory and Holy Communion, I was imagining I was Edward VI being crowned King of England by Fr. Kucher.
Since Cubao became a Diocese, the Church was elevated to Cathedral status and underwent a beautiful renovation retaining its simple grandeur.
After taking photos with my handy camera, I walked to the second pew where I used to pray before exams. I knelt and whispered a very short prayer - "Thank You".
