    As part of the Historical Heritage we are interested in forming a sub group which will be known as Organ Historical
    Society of Philippines. The Church at Boljoon which is nearby
    has a historic pipe organ which we are planning to restore
    back to its former glory. Pipe organs go back to the 16th century in the Philippines and many were built through the years by supervision of foreign builders and local craftsman.Unfortunately many have been lost. We have restored the following:
    Bohol- Baclayon, Luay, Loboc
    Manila- St. Agustin, Manila Cathedral, Santo Tomas, Santo Domingo, St. Stephen,
    Replica organs have been constructed Lipa Cathedral, Pasig
    Cathedral, Cebu Cathedral, Edsa Shrine, San Carlos Seminary
    We are currently discussing restoration in Bacong, Jimenez, Dapitan and Ozamiz City.
    The organ in Dapitan is historically significant as it was in place when Jose Rizal was in exile there and he may have been instrumental in procuring the instrument and maybe even playing it! But the wiser minds of that community what we understand want to move it to a museum as it is barely operable at present and is a fine example of local assembly although some ugly modifications were made on a German organ (Walcker). Visit our website at Diegocera.com and please contact us if you know of any other historic instruments.

    Noong unang itinatag ang mga simbahan sa Romblon ng 1636 sa mga lugar ng Timaya, Banton, Romblon, Cabolutan, La Lauan, Odiongan, Cajidiocan at Cauit, mapapansin mo na ang natira nalamang sa original na desinyoy ang simbahan ng Romblon at Cauit (Azagra). Ang lahat ng mga estruktura ay pinalitan na ng makabagong desinyo na bukod sa pangit na ay wala pang historical significance. Kagaya ng mga ni-remodelong simbahan ng Banton at Cajidiocan. Ang sa mga lugar ng Timaya, Cabolutan, La Lauan at Odiongan ay nasira na, subalit ang fundacion ay matatagpuan pa kung saan ito orihinal na itinayo. Suggestion ko na muling i-reconstruct ang mga gusaling ito sa orihinal na desinyo upang ipamalas sa mga huling hinirasyon ang kayamanan, sining at cultura ng ating mga ninuno.

    Ang mga gusali ng mga simbahan na huling itinayo sa tulong ni Fray Agustin de San Pedro na binansagan na Padre Capitan ay ang mga sumusunod: San Jose (Simara), Andagao, Parpagoja, Tingaray, Looc, Catolog, Guinbirayan, Sabang, Cabalian, Guinpuc-an, Cagbagacay, Guintiguian, Naylog, Espana, Pag-alad, Isabel, Princesa abp. ay nakakalungkot sabihin na tanging sa bayan lamang ng San Fernando (Pag-alad) makikita ang hindi binagong arkitekto ng gusali. Kailan lang giniba at binago ang mga simbahan ng San Jose (Simara) at San Agustin (Badajoz) nitong mga kalahating siglo nakaraan lamang. Nakakapanghinayang na ang mga gusaling ito ay itinayo ng ationg mga ninuno, subalit sa isang iglap lamang dahil sa walang pagpapahalaga sa kasaysayan, ay giniba, binago at pinalitan ng modernong gusaling “with poor sense and poor taste of arts”.

    Am glad to see this ever beautiful church I was baptized more than six dacades ago. I used to attend mass with my Lola everytime I spend summer vacation as a young boy to visit my relatives. I was born in this town but grew up in Cajidiocan. Incidentally, I was ordained as Permanent Deacon in the Archdiocese of New York and studied at St. Joseph Seminary.It’s nice to read the history of many local churches.
