San Fernando cathedral gets approval for cultural importance

The city government of San Fernando, Pampanga province is celebrating the newest feat achieved by the iconic Metropolitan Cathedral of San Fernando.

On Dec. 11, the National Museum of the Philippines declared the cathedral as an “important cultural property,” in a ceremony led by San Fernando Archbishop Emeritus Paciano Aniceto and Archbishop Florentino Lavarias.

The Metropolitan Cathedral was founded by the Augustinians in 1754 and placed under the advocation of the Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion while the town was under the patronage of San Fernando III.

“Metropolitan Cathedral is a very beautiful place. It has its own neo-classical touch to it, but most of all, it manifested this enduring faith among Fernandinos. I can see how devoted they are in religious aspects, and how faithful they are to their church,” said Flores.

National Museum’s Resolution No. 21–2017 mandates the State to “promote and popularize the nation’s historical and cultural heritage and resources.”
