Our Beloved Church will go through yet another significant and ridiculously terrible renovation. It was currently approved that a ‘best wing’ surrounding to the currently existing left wing(previous Sacristy) of the church will soon be constructed.This will suggest making a hole at the side of the ancient Church, destroying the structure and its enormous uphold which supports the walls. Worst, the Cursillo Home, who has actually kept its original adobe walls will also be harmed by this un-necessary growth. The construction of the 2nd church of Cabuyao was initiated by the First Filipino Parish priest, Fray Blas de Sta. Rosa, a native pampango (kapampangan). Materials for its building was personally hand selected by the priest himself, meaning to state, the church is really historic not simply in structure however in its components as well. He died soon prior to the church is finished, but he donated his lifetime savings just to continue its building. The 2nd church was inaugurated on January 26, 1771. Our church had actually suffered a lot. I hope numerous will understand the value of loosing another part of our heritage.

isa lang poh ang nakikita kong dahilan nito kaya immediate ang construction … just recently poh ksi nagkaroon ng disagreement in between cursillo and church … sabihin na poh nating ‘revenge’ itoh ng pari sa cabuyao …


FILIPINO PARISH PRIEST: Bachiller Don Blás de Sta. Rosa (1703).

Dr. Luciano P.R. Santiago.

The surname of Padre Blás was extremely normal of those of early Filipinos who adopted saint’s names as patronymics. This practice would later damage colonial records and impel the Governor General Don Narciso Clavería to prohibit the presumption of saints’ names in his decree on the systemization of Filipino patronymics in 1849. (It should be noted that Spanish friars likewise carried saints’ names, however these they took only upon investiture.).
Sta.Rosa de Lima, the first saint of the New World, became preferred in the Islands after her canonization in 1671 when she was declared patron saint of the Americas and the Philippines. Henceforth, her name was utilized extensively both as given name for ladies and as surname. This is substantiated by examining any 18th century baptismal book of a Philippine parish. Readily available records indicate that Blás de Sta. Rosa was most probably born upon February 3, 1678 (Feast of San Blás), or a few years after the canonization of Sta. Rosa. (1).
The Bachiller Sta. Rosa graduated from the University of Sto. Tomás in 1692 with the degree of Bachelor of Arts. He was among the earliest native graduates of the venerable institution. Because the very first Indios to be confessed to the Manila colleges, except Letrán, were Pampangos, it is most likely that Sta. Rosa stemmed from Pampanga. Sta. Rosa was likewise apparently a relative of another Pampango priest, Bachiller Don Gregorio de Sta. Rosa y Ramos, among the Filipino priests ordained by Archbishop Cuesta in 1723. (2).
Manila Archbishop Diego Camacho y Ávila (1697-1706), founder of the Filipino clergy, ordained Sta. Rosa together with Br. Don Alfonzo Baluio y Garzía, another Pampango, on the ember days after Pentecost in May or June of 1703. On September 7, the same day that Baluio was proclaimed missionary of Abra de Vigan, Sta. Rosa was selected proprietary parish priest of San Policarpio de Tabuco (now Cabuyao, Laguna). Thus, he became the first Filipino Indio pastor not just in the archdiocese of Manila however in the entire Philippines. The substantial parish of Tabuco had actually just been divided by the archbishop on December 9, 1702 into two curacies: that of Tabuco proper, that included the Dominican Hacienda of San Juán Bautista de Calamba, and the brand-new parish of San Pedro de Tunazán which encompassed the town of Biñán. By competitive evaluations, Sta. Rosa had won the now rather lowered parish of Tabuco, while the Spanish Genius Don Protazio Cabezas later acquired the curacy of Tunazán on Might 2, 1704. The latter was to become vicar general (1717-1741) and then bishop of Cebú (1741-1752) and a staunch advocate of Filipino priests. (3).
A few months after the arrival of Archbishop Francisco de la Cuesta of the Order of St. Hieronymus, Camacho’s successor, Sta. Rosa fell ill and was still convalescing in November 1707 according to a report of Mro. Cabezas, who had actually been appointed vicar forane of Laguna. The following year, in line with Cuesta’s concept that indio priests ordained by Camacho were incompetent and unworthy, the suspicious prelate through his secretary ordered Cabezas to conduct a secret investigation on the life and labors of the first brown pastor of the archdiocese. There were reports, apparently coming from friars of surrounding estancias (ranches), that he was negligent in commemorating The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and that he lived outside his parish. Without waiting, nevertheless, for the results of the questions, Cuesta, obviously assuming the charges to hold true, went on and wrote his now famous letter to the king dated June 20, 1708 knocking the incompetence and unworthiness of his predecessor’s native ordinees. 4 days later on, his vicar forane, Mro. Cabezas, filed a radiant report on Sta. Rosa to the archdiocesan secretary guaranteeing the Indio priest’s integrity and diligence! Mentioning witnesses, consisting of Don Juán Ruiz Ximenes, the Spanish administrator of the Hacienda of Calamba, Cabezas verified that Sta. Rosa stated Masses frequently for his parishioners, consisting of on banquets marked with “two crosses” and Saturdays, which even his Spanish predecessors were not wont to do for many years before him. The only exception was when he was immobilized by disease. He had a house on his farm, which was, however, no farther from his church than Binondo is from Malate. However he stayed there primarily at harvest time and for convalescence. (4).
He seemed to have remained in frail health many of his life. In the middle of 1710, he got an authorized leave and asked for another priest to replace him in his post. However, the Spanish presbyter who was sent out to Tabuco, Licenciado Don Joseph de Alfaro, ended up being unable to speak a word of Tagalog so that Sta. Rosa chose not to turn the parish over to him. A month later, he was still pleading for an authorized leave and this time it was obviously granted. (5).
Despite his fragile health, it was he who developed the parish church of Tabuco (Cabuyao). This is taped in another extant letter of his, dated November 15, 1716, dealt with to Archbishop Cuesta relating to the development of the church building. He stated that given that the town had moved to a greater website fifty-one years previously (1665), it had actually not had a long-term holy place. He had actually personally gone up to the mountain (he was most likely referring to Mount Makiling) to pick the very best lumber for it. Now he was asking the archbishop and through him, the governor-general, to exempt the community from paying tributes for the period of the work. (6) He was the first Filipino priest to develop a church.
After a lifetime of service to his parish, he died in the middle of 1733 in the thirtieth year of his priesthood, when he remained in his mid-50s. In his last will and testament, he bestowed the then munificent amount of 998 pesos as a pious endowment (obra pía) for the maintenance of the church he had built throughout his long term. The church still stands today. He was replaced in the interim by his coadjutor, Br. Don Matheo Graña, another Indio Pampango. On September 15, 1733, the exclusive pastorship of Tabuco was won through synodal evaluations by a more skilled Indio Pampango presbyter, Br. Don Joseph Nuñes. The parish remained in the hands of native priests to the end of the Spanish program. (7).
