Burgos Residence

DESCRIPTION

Burgos in Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte was accepted as a residence of the Province during the 8th Ordinary Provincial Chapter (April 16 to 21, 2012). In May 2010, the friars from Socorro Community started extending their ministry to Santa Ana Parish in Poblacion, Burgos. They were temporarily housed at a small rectory beside the parish church. In 2015, a bigger friary was constructed during the term of Fr. Fernando S. Cleopas, OSA as Local Superior. The friary was blessed on February 28, 2020.

The late Fr. Benjamin C. Unabia, Jr., OSA was officially installed as Burgos’ 1st Parish Priest during the town and parish fiesta on July 26, 2013 by Surigao Bishop Antonieto D. Cabajog. The Parish of Santa Ana will be under the administration of the Augustinians for 25 years based on the memorandum of agreement signed between the Diocese of Surigao and the Province on July 26, 2012.
