Catbalogan readies for Quadricentennial celebration

Catbalogan City embarks on another milestone as 2015-2016 becomes our jubilee year for the Quadricentennial Celebration or 400th year anniversary since the establishment of St. Bartholomew Parish as the Mission Center and “Residencia” by the Jesuit Missionaries and Catbalogan as the “Cabecera” or Capital of Samar Island.

The year-long celebration from August 2015 to August 2016 will carry the theme “Catbalogan, Higugmaon Ta! Celebrating 400 years of Faith, Culture and Development!” to highlight the role of Catholic faith in shaping Catbalogan from being a small fishing community to a developing city with many potentials.

Series of activities are lined up to commemorate this once-in-a-lifetime event and are being led by both the City Government of Catbalogan and the St. Bartholomew Parish through the multi-sectoral Local Culture and Arts Council (LCAC).
