It’s the archdiocese’s dream of restoring grandeur to the landmark of the Catholic faith in the Archdiocese of Palo, Leyte.
The Lord’s Transfiguration Cathedral – better known as the Palo Metropolitan Cathedral – has been undergoing major renovation work since August of 2010.
Last reconstructed in the early 1960’s, the historic structure has badly needed repair of its roof and ceiling, electrical and communication systems, and major renovation of its sanctuary and belfry.
The renovation project costs over 25 million pesos under the commission of Filipino architect Gervacio Amistoso.
The major facelifting comes in time when the Archdiocese celebrates its Diamond Jubilee (75th anniversary) as a diocese on November 28, 2012.
