St. John Paul II Parish – Eastwood, Libis

The Saint John Paul II Parish is a low-rise structure with a beige exterior, low triangular roof, and a simple black cross on top. Several plants surround it. A lawn with grasses separates the church entrance from the sidewalk. A red curve path between the lawn and the entrance allows cars to stop and drop passengers to the church without disturbing the vehicles on the main road. The angle of this shot allows us to see very little of the roof's surface, which is red, the same as that roof over a walk path behind the lawn on the left. A house-shape pentagon glass panel is in front of the church wall below the cross and above the main entrance; it is a stained glass window depiction of the Holy Family.

The sanctuary of St. John Paul II Parish is predominantly brown with goldtone decoration. The altar is brown draped with white cloth and has embossed decorations of lamb, chalice, host, and wheat. The reredos is decorated with white and goldtone curls, leaves, and pillars, with the statue of the Holy Family at the center. Joseph wears brown clothes and standing while touching Jesus' back, Mary wears red clothes and half-kneeling to make her face at level with Jesus, and Jesus is wearing white with his hands spread out. The tabernacle is a brown box with a white front door decorated by a goldtone cross. The top of the tabernacle is a semicircular dome with a cross on top. The tabernacle is in front of the Holy Family statues, partly covering their feet. The reredos is in a recess on the wall framed by a brown rounded rectangle with goldtone decorations. A crucifix is on top of the brown rounded rectangle frame; it depicts Jesus with white undergarment and three rays emanating from the back of his head, and the color of the cross is black.

Two goldtone crosses are on the white part of the stole and three similar crosses on the red part, with no cross on the black part. His right hand is raised as if he is greeting, while his left hand holds a gray staff with a crucifix at the end.The confessional inside the St. John Paul II Parish has two doors, one for the penitent and one for the priest, but it's not apparent which is which by its design.
