Villar-led Vista Land to build churches

MANILA, Philippines - Villar-led property developer Vista Land Inc. is now building churches in its residential developments around the country. This as former Senator Manny Villar led the inauguration and blessing of the San Vicente Church in Camella's Gran Europa development in Cagayan de Oro last Saturday.

The church, named after the patron saint of the province, is the first built by Vista Land outside of Metro Manila. Designed by Architect Arturo Secuya, the church has a European theme and has a sitting capacity of 250 people. Vista Land and the Villar SIPAG have partnered to build houses of worship in its home communities. "The churches we are building, such as the San Vicente Ferrer here in Cagayan de Oro, are among the corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts of our companies. We believe that building communities and providing a place of worship for people is the best start," said Villar.

In addition to the newly-built San Vicente Ferrer Church in Cagayan de Oro, the Santuario de San Ezekiel Moreno in Pulanglupa, Las Pinas City is currently under construction. Santuario Madonna del Divino Amore at Evia in Alabang and a Swiss-inspired church at Crosswinds in Tagaytay have also been earmarked for completion.

More churches will be built in other parts of Luzon, namely: Camella Provence in Malolos, Bulacan; Maia Alta in Antipolo, Rizal; Camella Tierra Nevada in General Trias, Cavitel and Plantacion Meridienne in Lipa, Batangas.
