The cathedral is old and badly needs some restoration. There are several masses in many languages. It is very near Rizal Boulevard for some night life.

The Cathedral has the Belfry beside it. Lots of people went for Mass. It was announced that they will start renovating the church, as it is one of the oldest church in the area.
