GS CCCPET inks MOU with Diocese of Catarman for Church Heritage Mapping

The Diocese of Catarman in Northern Samar accelerates efforts toward its Golden Anniversary celebration on 2025 with a series of church heritage conservation projects. The GS CCCPET, represented by its Director Assoc. Prof.  Eric Babar Zerrudo PhD, began initial talks with the Diocese in 2021 through the endorsement of Fr Roberto Luanzon OP to Fr. Roberto Cisneros, Chair of the Diocesan Commission on the Cultural Heritage of the Church of Catarman. Last April 29, 2023, Feast of St. Catherine of Sienna, Most Rev Emanuel Trance D.D., Bishop of Catarman, signed the memorandum of understanding with the University of Santo Tomas. The partnership commences with the church cultural heritage mapping that will cover 31 parishes that spreads to far flung islands and remote highlands. Due to the extensive coverage of the mapping project, the Provincial Government of Samar along with the local government units (LGUs) and the University of Eastern Philippines (UEP) have been invited to complement the limited  manpower and research resources of the church. The project is managed by the ground staff of Fr Eduard Dorico and Ms Karen Gajutos of the Diocesan Commission and Ms. Beverly Bautista, Technical Coordinator of the GS CCCPET.
