The repair work at the Manila Cathedral is in full swing just weeks away from its expected reopening.

Catholic news website UCA News earlier reported that the church is set reopen in December.

The cathedral, also known as the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, in Intramuros has been closed to the public since February 7, 2012, for major repairs.

Manila Archbishop Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle ordered the closure of the cathedral after an evaluation revealed that the cathedral has several structural integrity issues.
