Archdiocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Loreto Parish / Twin Churches of Bustillos – Manila City

Archdiocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Loreto Parish / Twin Churches of Bustillos

Erected by the Franciscans in 1613, the chapel which preceded the church was dedicated to Our Lady of Loreto. In 1666, the actual church was built after it had been devastated by several disasters, both induced by nature and humans. According to Catholic history, “Our Lady of Loreto” refers to the Holy House of Loreto where our Blessed Mother Mary was born and where the Annunciation took place. Traditionally, the Lady of Loreto is the patron saint of people involved in aviation and construction. However, in the Philippine setting she is invoked against fire on account of the statue of Our Lady of Loreto surviving the numerous fires which have razed the Sampaloc district. Feastday: Second Sunday of December
