The place is a refuge, so quiet that gives that peace of mind. Coming from the long treks and caving, this church is a good place to visit if you want to pray and pour out all your worries.

I was amazed of the altar's appearance. The statue of Jesus Christ was made of wood and beside it were wood carvings but I really can't identify the images. Since it was almost 5 pm, it was almost empty, very solemn. It's my first visit to this church so I made three(3) wishes!

It was really nothing special as far as a attraction. It was a ok church that was closed. Nice construction ..nothing grand set in the Sagada area woods. Just a relaxing walk..but not awsome

the simplicity of the church complements the simplicity of sagada. entering the church will give you goosebumps knowing the traditional ways of burial and ceremonies being held every now and then. they embrace christianity without sacrificing their tradition and culture.

Nobody goes to Sagada without visiting the Church which has been there for a century. The grounds are perfect for photos, they have services every morning. Perfect for weddings too.

The long walk and trail going to this church is worth upon entering the premises. Nice architecture and interior. One can pray solemnly in this church and be alone with God. It's nice to visit this place and be thankful to God for the wonderful place we spent our vacation

We are Catholics but that will not stop us in visiting other Houses of Worship most especially if the architecture meets our fancy. This is one of those since this is Episcopalian. This church is really very beautiful, the altar simple as it is is very nice, the building itself shows sturdiness. The interior is not sparse but very simple... More

If you ask your tour guide, this church isn't always open. Thankfully, when we went there, it was! and so we got to see the inside. Most of the people of Sagada are Episcopalian because they were the only missionaries who came to the place during the American occupation. (The Roman Catholic church in Sagada is only built very recently).... More
