The parish of the Santo Niño and the town of Valencia began as Barrio Panangatan of Dimiao, Bohol. Conjoined with adjacent barrios, it was constituted a town in 1869 and a parish in 1871 and named after a city on Spain’s southern coast.

Valencia Church building commenced during the term of Fray Mariano Cornago (1870-77) and was completed in 1882 by Fray Francisco Arraya, who laid the church’s wooden floor. The church walls were of tabique but were later replaced by cement.

 Valencia Church is cruciform with a steep roof and a pyramidal crossing tower. Cut stone is used in parts of the church like the facade, however, concrete is found elsewhere. The real treasure of the church is its wooden floor of alternating dark (tindalo or balayong) and light (molave or tugas) wood planks.

At the transept crossing an eight pointed flower design is used for the floor while, a herringbone pattern is used elsewhere. The interior is unpainted, unlike most Bohol churches and has altars in the neoclassical idiom.

Valencia Church convento is located not beside the church as customary but across the street. This structure was renovated in the 19th century.

Other mission churches of architectural distinction include Dauis Church with its beautiful frescoes and Loboc Church with its three-story convent.

Another is the Panglao Church with its ornate antiques and ceiling murals; Loon Church, the most stunning church built by the Recollect Friars; and the 19th century Maribojoc Church.

This church is where my mother and father were wed, where my grandparents were wed, where my great grandparents were wed, where my great-great grandparents were wed, so on and so forth.

I would like to hold mine here as well in the future.

My sister was christened in this beautiful church by the very priest who wed them. I always remind her of the beauty of Valencia, and that despite our being away from our town--there we will always be. There in that church was where she was named a member of the Catholic Church upon her baptism. And this goes for all Valencianons who were baptized in this church, wed in this church, and given last rights in this church.

Beautiful kaayo.

SANTO NIÑO PARISH (Valencia, 6306 Bohol)



The Santo Niño was officially installed as Patron of Valencia, Bohol, by virtue of a letter numbered 877 of the Ministry of Overseas Territories in Madrid, Spain, dated September 3, 1870. The establishment of the Parish of Valencia came a year after Panangatan, Canmanico and Cutcutan, all eastern barrios of the old town of Dimiao were constituted into a separate and independent town named Valencia on October 27, 1869.

Father Mariano Cornago was the first Parish Priest of Valencia. He started the building of the Poblacion and the construction of the church. He was succeeded in January 1878 by Fr. Francisco Arcaya who completed the construction of the church on September 7, 1882. He also completed the convent started by his predecessor and built the cemetery surrounded by a wall of stone tablets we call “cotta”.

Sto. Niño Parish is located at the Southeast of the Province of Bohol, 42 kilometers from the Cathedral of Saint Joseph the Worker of the Diocese of Tagbilaran. It is rectangular in shape. Its land area is 10,886.50 hectares, with rolling steep hills in the north fed by the Panangatan River. The valley happens to be the breadbasket of the town producing rice as its staple food. The coastal areas are all level lands for residential and commercial purpose. The parish of Valencia composed of 35 barangays with 72 chapels. The major crops in the parish are rice, corn, coconut, peanut, camote, and other root crops and vegetables. Our coastal water is one of the fishing ground of the province. Other source of livelihood in the parish are ceramics, furniture making, wood carving, loom-weaving, basketry and hog raising. Our parish is also rich of tourism potentials like Badiang Spring in Anas, Interior of the Santo Niño church, Anislag Spring in Omjon, Empehan Cascading Falls in Ticum and Panangatan Valley.

Valencia has also rich historical and cultural heritage. Records tell us that the Treaty of Peace between Col. Pedro Samson and the Boholano soldier was signed at the Santo Niño convent. The sitio Lawis of barangay Banderahan has become the bastion of the last three wars, the wars against Spaniards, the Americans and the Japanese forces.

With present leadership, Valencia is determined to heed with progress. The town joins the movement of its development, pouring with financial assistance for its infrastructural developments the image of the town has changed a lot booming into modernization.

When I last visited the Santo Nino Parish Church in Valencia this summer, I was able to talk to the parish grounds caretakers as well as the ladies in the rectories , all of whom gave me a tour of the church. The church's interior dome was renovated thanks in part to the generous donations of VALENCIANONS (in the town as well as abroad). The beautiful flooring of the church, as i was told, is original and was nailed by using wooden nails, which Fr. Cornago himself helped install during the creation of the church. The grounds of the church is so beautiful, and I was able to see the original Santo Nino . Guapo kaajo.

They have cleaned the grounds, and are on the way of replacing the old chairs and benches in the church, all of which are thanks due to the donations of Valencianons.

Let us keep our beautiful Church up to date, and clean, mga higala.

VIVA SANTO NINO! VIVA VALENCIA...

Hapit na raba Ijang Fiesta karong Enero.

Very few Valencianhons knew that hidden somewhere in the parish is a priceless gem: a statue of the Sto Nino which has his male genetalia. "Sto Nino nga naa'y pikoy", matud pa sa mga tiguwang.
