A Church In The Sky: Christ the King Parish

There's a quiet little church on top of a hill in Muzon, Taytay, Rizal that we discovered during our Visita Iglesia last year. The church of Christ The King Parish was aptly called "Church in the Sky" because of its location. We did not quite enjoy the place the last time we got there because it was already nighttime and we only stayed a few minutes to pray one station of the cross. We swore to come back. After ten months, my husband was finally able to muster enough courage to drive the steep road going to the church. You need to give me ten years more before I can drive all the way up there, hahaha! It was not that steep, though, according to my husband. It was probably hard for us driving up the road the first time because it was dark and still unfamiliar.

We finally got to appreciate the interior of the church. The overall feel of the place is royal and majestic probably because their patron is Christ the King. The wooden fixtures in the altar are lined up in gold paint. Even the pews have golden emblems carved on its side. The Feast of the Epiphany has already passed but the Belen (Nativity scene) in the church is still up.

We enjoyed the cool mountain breeze outside the church. There's a tree near the edge of the cliff where big flat rocks were set up. We sat there for a while and just let the calm and serenity of the place overtake us. It sure recharged me physically and spiritually.

The Church in The Sky can be found in Barangay Muzon, Taytay, Rizal. To reach the place, just take the Ortigas Ave Ext. Road going to Taytay and Angono. Once you see the Muzon Satellite Market on the other side of the road, turn left towards the small road that will take you up to the church. Sunday masses are held at 6:30 a.m., 9:00 a.m., and 5:30 p.m.

Driving home.
