The church is still a sub-parish, though assigned with a priest-in-charge. Baptisms and weddings can be conducted in this church, which is under the Quasi-Parish of San Antonio de Padua in Pooc, Silang, Cavite.
The elegant church sits right by the entrance gates to Westgrove. Its whitewashed walls and tiled roof are immaculately clean, betraying the church's young age. In terms of lay-out and general-feel, however, it is traditional and classic. It is reminiscent of serene Carmelite convent churches, similarly structured with inviting courtyards. But it is a suitably updated interpretation, a successful mix of the old and new, with clean modern lines, and effective use of repetition of circles and angles.
The altar, in particular, is peculiarly compelling in its minimalism. A lone figure dominates the altar, Christ on a cross standing on an awesome solid block of hard wood. Behind the cross is a dome, ingeniously repositioned on its side, a refreshing departure from the usual dome on top of the altar. Covered in a gold leaf finish, the dome is visually disorienting, creating the feeling of falling into the wall, as though one were being drawn closer. The dizzying trick played on the eyes by the dome-lain-on-its-side can be solved by focusing on one object - the Christ on the cross - which offers stability of vision.
