Brief history

The beginnings of the Archdiocese started with the arrival of the Augustinian Recollects in 1848 followed by the Jesuits soon after.

Its official beginnings came during its establishment as a Prelature Nullius on December 17, 1949 having the Archdiocese of Cebu as its Metropolitan. It was elevated into a Diocese on July 11, 1966 and eventually became an Archdiocese on June 29, 1970 taking as its titular patron St. Peter the Apostle whose feast day is celebrated also on June 29.

The official name given to the ecclesiastical jurisdiction is "Archidioecesis Davaensis" and San Pedro Cathedral Parish as the seat of the Archbishop.

On December 29, 1954, Clovis Thibault, PME was appointed the first bishop of the Prelature of Davao. He was a priest of the Foreign Mission Society of Quebec. Succeeding him on December 9, 1972 was Antonio Lloren Mabutas, a native of Agoo, La Union. He was then succeeded by Fernando Capalla who first became Coadjutor Archbishop on June 28. 1994 and became its Archbishop on November 28. 1996.

Currently its Archbishop is Romulo Valles. He was appointed on February 11, 2012 by the Supreme Pontiff, Pope Benedict XVI, and took possession of the Archdiocese last May 22. 2012 at San Pedro Cathedral.
