Hermano Mayor for 2019 San Bartolome Feast

This year’s Hermano Mayor for the Feast of Señor San Bartolome Apostol is Mr. Manuel Van Torrevillas.

Former Vice Mayor of Catbalogan for three (3) terms, he is now the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officer of the Provincial Government of Samar.

Several activities and competitions as well as outreach programs are being partnered with this City Government including the comeback of “Waray-Waray Songwriting Competition” in partnership with Balaug Arts Society of the late Junjie Tizon, which coincides with the efforts of the administration on cultural preservation and promotion.

“Pagbalos, Pagrayhak, Pagdayeg, Pasalamat” is the theme of this year’s celebration, which echoes the need to repay, to celebrate, to honor, and to give thanks for the intercession of our Patron Saint, Señor San Bartolome for the bountiful blessing our city has received. 

Viva Señor San Bartolome!
Viva Manaragat!
