Church of Our Lady of Lourdes

Gothic Architecture is deeply reflected in the facade of the church with a belfry bell tower in front accompanied by a gallery to accommodate the choir. In order to provide comfortable seating for roughly 1,500 persons, the plan of the church took the form of a cross with a main body and two wings. The wings on either side contain two concealed confessionals to provide undisturbed privacy between the penitent and the priest. The structure of the building is reinforced with brick walls and concrete frame.

The church is clear of internal pillars by replacing it with steel trusses on the top. The absence of internal pillars provide the congregation with better visibility from any position within the building to follow the service at the main altar.
