My Dear People of God in the Archdiocese of Zamboanga

We are deeply grateful to our Almighty God and to our beloved Nuestra Señora La  Virgen del Pilar for the gift of Faith. On April 10, 1910, His Holiness, Pope Pius X formally created our local church a Diocese, establishing us as the first ecclesiastical jurisdiction in Mindanao that covered the entire islands of Mindanao and Sulu, thus making the Archdiocese of Zamboanga the Mother Diocese of the Church in Mindanao. It was only proper that we were erected a Diocese because by the year 1910, Zamboanga was a flourishing Catholic community. read more
