It was a victory for heritage as the Cabatuan parish priest, stung by his illegal structure built infront of the Cabatuan cemetery chapel, demolished the extension.
Cabatuan’s beautiful cemetery chapel is one of a few existing in the country with its highly stylized bas reliefs and beautiful design. Now, the parish priest, Fr. Patricio A. Salarda is building a modern covered extension right infront of the central entrance.
As what I have mentioned previously in this post, the gospel side of the Talisay church is now renovated to form a covered area for parishioners, just like what was done to the epistle side. The thick walls, however, are still intact.
The burgeoning population of the city means additional parishioners. For this church, the rising number of parishioners has to be accommodated.
