Our Lady of the Snows Parish Church @ Dumarao, Capiz

How to Get to Our Lady of the Snows Parish:
Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific service Roxas City daily. To get to the Church you can rent a Van going to Dumarao or for the cheaper way ride a bus (P59 from Roxas City). Dumarao is an hour trip by Bus and when you reach Dumarao just ask the tricycle driver to bring you to the Church.

My Thoughts on Our Lady of the Snows Parish:
When i arrived at the front of the Church I did not know that what was inside was the ruins of the Church. A Fire razed the Church on November 2009 and as of this writing not much has been done to  return the church to its former Glory. Lack of funds obviously prevents this from happening. Souvenirs of the Old Santos which previously adorned the Church can still be seen but they have turned to Charcoal. I hope that the Church will someday be returned to its former Glory.
