First on the list is this church in San Juan located between Xavier School and Immaculate Concepcion Academy. Location-wise, Mary the Queen is definitely convenient for those who live in the north and central areas of Metro Manila. It’s also close to alfresco restaurants you can reserve or close down for a simple gathering—like Mateo’s Restaurant or Lemuria.

The breathtaking brick facade of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Muntinlupa makes it another favorite church among couples. But what we like about them is how strict they are in implementing protocols to keep everyone safe from COVID-19. They usually hold baptisms on Sundays at 11:30 in the morning, but just to be sure, you can call or message them.
