Throwback Photo: Saint Ignatius of Loyola Parish (circa 1980s) Tetuan, Zamboanga City

Prior to the bigger, present structure, this image shows the older church made of wood and steel. It was under the Claretian missionaries when the church was already reconstructed after the war. Administration was handed over to the archdiocesan clergy.

(source: Wood and Stone: Jesuit Art and Architecture, Ateneo de Manila Press, 1988)

The present structure of the Parish is modeled after this one. This structure is colored blue green and light blue tones, in contrast to the larger, red-roofed, cream white present one.
