The century-old Holy Rosary Parish Church in Boracay is being renovated with the amount of six million pesos from the contributions of parishioners, donations and fund-raising activities.

According to Moderator Priest Father Arnold Crisostomo, “The construction was started to enlarge the cathedral because of the increasing volume of church goers especially during Sunday.”

Apart from it, the priest added that those needs were kept in mind when new features were added such as building a balcony since the said church was under threat from rain.

Crisostomo said: “church leaders met with architects and designers to organize a way to rebuild the damaged parts of the facility while keeping in mind its historic value and modern needs.”

Meanwhile, the construction is expected to be completed in mid-December.
