San Sebastian Cathedral

The front of San Sebastian Cathedral as seen from the corner of its yard. It has gray facade and has two towers on the sides. The curvature of the towers is due to vertical panorama shot; they are actually straight. It has several semi-oblong windows and also a semi-oblong main entrance at the center and ground level. Above the main entrance is a circular cavity with what looks like a white statue of Jesus inside. The central structure between the bell towers has a triangular roof with a cross on top. The bell towers also have crosses on top and circular windows below the bell structures.

The altar and the lectern are brown with goldtone highlights and decorations. The center of the wall beyond the altar has a shelf containing a statue of Saint Sebastian in goltone undergarment and with arrows piercing different parts of his body. The shelf is underneath a triangular concrete structure supported by four pillars, with the altar just outside it. Two circular windows are on either side of this structure. Tarpaulin banners are displayed underneath each of these circular windows. On the left is a banner of the 2019 year of the youth and on the right is that Lent 2019. The cathedra of the bishop of Bacolod is also visible behind the lectern.A goldtone metal plate shows the seal of the Diocese of Bacolod; an escutcheon divided vertically into two halves; yellow and blue. The yellow on top has a white cross with two brown arrows penetrating it at its foot. The blue half has a hill with a church on top and trees on the side. The escutcheon has a crown on top.A white statue within the compound of San Sebastian Cathedral depicts Fr. Mauricio Ferrero. Father Ferrer in this depiction has a thin hair, wearing a white cassock, has a black fascia (sash) with beads that look like rosary attached to the sash. An embossed mural attached to the external wall of San Sebastian Cathedral depicts the 11th station of the cross; Jesus is nailed on the cross. The background is blue, A person wearing a blue robe and white sash around his neck and shoulder is standing behind Jesus at the center. Jesus is nailed on the cross but it is still on the ground. Another person in green robe is kneeling while holding Jesus's hand; he is raising his other hand as if holding a hammer and about to strike but no hammer is visible. Two persons with a green robe and a white robe and pink hats are behind the kneeling person on the left. Two other people, a man with a white robe and a pink inner garment, and a woman in a blue robe and white hood are seen on the right.A crucifix depicts Jesus with bronze skin, black hair and beard, and white undergarment.
