cebu church directory

If you've tried browsing through your directory, looking for the telephone numbers of churches in which to hold weddings, you'll know a lot of them aren't in there. I was beginning to think that I might have to go the actual churches, one by one, to inquire about requirements and so on, when by chance I Googled a church's name and ended up in the website of the Archdiocese of Cebu. But why do I say chance? God doesn't do coincidences. :)

Here's an alphabetical listing of some of the recognizable parishes in the Archdiocese's extensive, and surprisingly up-to-date, directory:

When I say recognizable, though, I mean recognizable by me, and that isn't saying much. For instance, the Redemptorist church is not in the list above because I have no idea what it's official name is. (Or it might actually be in the list above, and I just don't know it.) So, if the church you're eyeing for your wedding ceremony isn't in my list, head for
the motherlode. The main directory page looks deceptively empty -- the actual directory is a drop-down list, so what you need to do is point your mouse over the word "Directory" in the red bar at the top of the page. Got it? Great.
