I took this photo of The San Lorenzo Ruiz Church in Bangued back in March 2013. I remember thieves took some antique relics from this church a while back. I can’t remember if they ever recover them. I tried looking for any information about this church but I can’t find any. Maybe one of our readers have something to share about this historic church?

Regarding San. Lorenzo Ruiz Church
There are two people who know of hand THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH, I’m certain they can share their info to all ABRENIANS.
1. Mrs. Mercedes ‘Mending’ Barros Guy
2. SC Assoc. Justice Lucas Bersamin
SYSOP, if you’re still in Bangued, PLEASE contact these people, they can help you on your quest.
DR. LEO TUASON.
Doc, there is an archive on our local bangued parish who could share the history of that church. If my memory serve’s me right I heard them talking that the bricks are mix with lime and some kind of bark of tree to make it hard and sturdy.
Sorry, I’m back in the U.S. I was there in March. I was really hoping someone could shed some lights about the history of this church.
I have to say I have personally talked with Mrs. Guy just today because I am actually writing a book about Abra and she has told me the story and history of this church. I can not find any info about the church until someone from the archives of the Diocese of Bangued told me to look for her. I had goosebumps listening to her wonderful story. She is the last living descendant of the late Rosa Balitoc (her grandma’s sister) . BTW I landed in this page because i am also researching other info about this Campo Santo Chapel and it is scarse. And I can not tell yet the whole story until it is published in the book. 🙂
storya kupo kupo
MY REPLY TO MR. KENT.
Sir, I have not read the local Bangued archive, but I know a bit of the HISTORY ….. how it all started ….
the money to built the CHURCH is donated by CERTAIN PERSON “ROSA ‘balitoc”… the rest of the
story can be provided by MRS. GUY or JUSTICE BERSAMIN.
WELCOME back to the STATES. I hope , you had a nice trip. I believe your mission in Bangued was a success.
Regarding the San Lorenzo Ruiz Church, I have an idea, we can conctact these two people I mentioned earlier.
1. MRS. Mercedez ‘Mending’ Barros Guy >>>> Anyone in the DEVINE CHURCH OF BANGUED who is
a user of the ABRENIAN.COM , PLEASE contact manang MENDING, MRS. GUY for me DR. TUASON
>>> MRS. GUY is a very devout catholic person, well known in the catholic circle, she can provide us her
version of the intriguing HISTORY OF THE CHURCH. She has a first-hand info about the CHURCH.
2. THE LAST RESORT IF NO.1 is unsuccessful….. we shall ask GOV. TAKIT to contact his brother
S C JUSTICE LOCAS BERSAMIN who can provide service to his fellow KABABAYANS by giving us
his version on the fascinating history of the San Lorenzo Ruiz Church.
DR. LEO TUASON.
Hello – can anyone please tell me the name of the cemetery in Bangbanar near the San Lorenzo Ruiz church?
