BY THE RIVER OF GIBALON

Where the Agustinian Priest Fray Alonzo Jimenes officiated in 1569 the first mass in the mainland Luzon. Here, you will see the re-enactment of that historical event that brought Christianity in Luzon which in turn brought great gifts and blessings to us, especially to the people of the Province of Sorsogon because we are the only one which can claim that Christianity in mainland Luzon was born in Gibalon, Magallanes, Sorsogon.
Photos taken during the actual presentation and re-enactment on October 22, 2016 at Gibalon River in celebration of the 2016 Sorsogon’s Kasanggayahan Festival.
