Congregations in the Philippines are continuing to hold worship amid the destruction caused by Typhoon Haiyan.
The Our Lady of the Holy Rosemary church, in Palo, was virtually destroyed by the super storm, with the roof being completely blown off.
The extent of the damage has forced the congregation to hold mass at a nearby construction site for the time being.
Santo Nino church, Tacloban, also suffered serious damage when Haiyan slammed into the Philippines, with the storm blowing a giant hole in its roof and smashing windows. The cross on its steeple was also snapped in half by the strong winds.
Despite the damage, the congregation is still meeting for worship in the tattered building and housing around 30 people. It is also helping in the distribution of aid for survivors.
