In preparation for the upcoming launching of the yearlong celebration of the 400 years since establishment of St. Bartholomew Church and Catbalogan City as Cabecera of Samar Island, the Local Culture and Arts Council reconvened last June 19, 2015 at SP Session Hall.

The said yearlong celebration is set to be launched this August 01, 2015, which will gather different sectors to drumbeat the events and will end by August of 2016.

With the theme “Catbalogan Higugmaon Ta: 400 years of celebrating culture, faith and development”, the coalition between the church and the city along with people’s organizations and civil society will showcase the rich history of Catbalogan City through the celebration towards further development as Samar Island’s political, economic and religious capital.

The said council is set to reconvene on July 09-10, 2015 to layout the timeline of planned activities along with the event’s official logo, theme song and others.
