Visita Iglesia 2011: San Miguel & St. Jude Church


The Church was built by Jesuits and is the first church made of stone near the Tirpa de Gllina in 1603. The church became a parish in 1611 and the center of the japanese mission in 1615. The church was given to the secular priests in 1768 and to the Franciscans in 1777.

The Church was under the care of the Parish of QUiapo in 1783 and later transferred back to the Fransciscans in 1797 under the auspices of secular priests in 1899. The church was heralded as Pro-Cathedral in 1946 - 1958. The church was named the the Altar of St. Michael and the Archangels in 1986.

On the altar is the crucifixion scene while the seven archangels have their own statue on the altar – St. Barachiel, St. Sealtiel, St. Uriel, St. Jhudiel, St. Gabriel, St. Raphael and St. Michael.

Upon entering the Church you can notice the seven archangels sculptures on every post. There is also a big 12 foot Bronze statue of St. Michael defeating a serpent who we know is the symbol of Lucifer.


The National Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus’ early beginnings can be traced back to the evangelization of the Chinese in Manila in 1588 under the Dominican Fathers which was so successful that in 1670 the number of baptized Chinese exceeded 70,000. Due to the so-called Chinese revolts, the Chinese ministry was placed under the secular clergy in the middle of the 18th Century. Because of this it was deemed impractical to have a separate parish for the Chinese.

There is a number of devotees that flock the church every Thursday ever since the church started its novenas. In June of1959 weekly novenas were held in which a lot of devotees from all over the country would eventually go to. Saint Jude Thaddeus, cousin and apostle of Jesus Christ is known as the patron of desperate cases.

The Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' recent drastic reorganization of the national security is one sign to this effect. He spoke slightingly but without bitterness of everything he had written, and I knew his new book must be very good for him to speak, without bitterness, of the faults of the past books. He quickly became a well known activist for Islamic revivalism calling for the ouster of pro-western governments using violent means if necessary.
