About the Shrine

The Shrine of St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus is envisioned to be the center of devotion to the Saint in Asia. It is also the Diocesan Shrine of the Military Ordinariate in the Philippines.

The primary influence of the design of the Shrine is the Reliquary of St. Thérèse. The building is shaped like a cross, as most Shrines are, with a long nave and two shorter transepts.

The Shrine’s architectural style is Classical Contemporary, with a columnless interior and sleek, rounded lines. It stands at 35 meters from street level to the tip of the dome ceiling and can seat up to 1,800 people comfortably.

Basement parking slots are also conveniently available to the Shrine and Columbarium visitors.
