History

The new Diocese of Talibon was created on January 9, 1986 by a Papal Bull from Pope John Paul II and canonically erected on December 3, 1986, under the titular patronage of the Most Holy Trinity, with Most Rev. Christian Vicente Fernandez Noel, D.D. of Sangi, Asturias, Cebu as its first bishop. Most Rev. Bruno Torpigliani, D.D., then Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines, presided over the rites of the diocese’s canonical erection as well as the new bishop’s installation at the Most Holy Trinity Cathedral. The new diocese consisted of 23 parishes, listed as follows, with their corresponding patrons and year of erection as chronologically ordered: Talibon (Most Holy Trinity, 1722), Inabanga(St. Paul, 1724), Guindulman (Lady of Consolation, 1797), Candijay (St. Joseph, 1857), Duero (Immaculate Conception, 1863), Carmen (St. Anthony the Abbot, 1874), Ubay (Sto. Niño, 1877), Anda (Sto. Niño, 1885), Mabini (St. Monica, 1905), Clarin (St. Michael, 1924), Sierra Bullones (Immaculate Conception, 1937)13, Sagbayan (St. Augustine, 1952), Alicia (St. Joachim and St. Ana, 1953), Trinidad (St. Isidore the Worker, 1954), President Garcia (Sto. Niño, 1954), Buenavista (Lady of the Holy Rosary, 1957), Dagohoy (Lady of Lourdes, 1957), Danao (Holy Family, 1957), Jetafe (Sto. Niño, 1957), Pilar (Virgen del Pilar, 1962), San Miguel (St. Michael, 1962), San Pascual in Ubay (St. Vincent Ferrer, 1967), and Bien Unido (Sto. Niño, 1967).[3]

On July 7, 1988, a decree issued by the Sacred Congregation for Bishops, by virtue of the faculties bestowed by Pope John Paul II, annexed the parish of Jagna (St. Michael, 1631) to the new Diocese of Talibon, in exchange of Clarin and Sagbayan that were detached in favor of the Diocese of Tagbilaran.[3]
