Saint James Parish Church In Subic, Zambales


And finally, we are down to the last church from our list! St James Parish Church is located in Subic, Zambales. They said that the church was actually founded since 1607 but the current building is seemingly a new one. It probably went through a series of restoration and renovation all through the years.P3124320tThe church has a very simple yet unique-looking facade. Although at some point it reminds me of both Ermita Shrine in Manila and the Mary Help of Christians Shrine in Parañaque.P3124321tAt the center of their facade is a balcony with a life sized image of Saint James (same feature that you can find from Ermita Shrine and Saint Jude Church in Ternate Cavite).P3124322tThe Church’s nave. Saint James Parish Church is also under the Diocese of Iba (part of Southern Vicariate) and the current parish priest is Rev. Fr. Audencio Mozo, Jr. and Rev. Emmanuel Jose S. Montes. I’m not really sure but one of them welcome us so warmly and tell us a brief story about their church.
