Temple Public Tour

Since its dedication on June 13, last year and the opening to the members the following day, the Temple is no longer a place for the public and non temple recommend holder to go inside.The record 40-thousand  plus visitors who were able to visit inside during the 2- week open house guided tour was an indication of the warm response by the public to go inside. This wonderful opportunity to invite the public is continued with the weekly public tour in the complex every Thursday 5 -7PM. The missionaries of Philippines Cebu Mission  facilitate the conduct of the activity.The tour allows non members to have an understanding why the Church builds temples and its importance.

Pedestrian Assistance

A sister coming from the Temple Complex safely assisted by the traffic enforcer
With the heavy  traffic along the highway where the Temple is located, crossing to either side of the lane  raised safety concerns. An arrangement with the local barangay authority was made to provide the Complex with traffic enforcer to man the area from 8AM to 10PM Tuesday to Saturday. The presence of the barangay traffic enforcer greatly ease the anxiety in crossing the busy street. So  next time you cross  the road going to or coming from the Complex, expect the friendly traffic enforcer to assist you , safely and with a smile :-)
