St. Joseph (The Worker) Parish Church of the Milaor

Even among the many interesting churches that can be found in the province of Camarines Sur, St. Joseph the Worker Parish Church remains one of the most visited and most revered places of worship in the province, attracting the faithful for miles around.

The St. Joseph the Worker Parish Church which stands today was once a big convent and monastery built by Frays Juan del Sacramento and Jose de la Virgen in 1585. Although both edifices were destroyed by fire and again were reconstructed by Fr. Francisco Delos Santos in the year 1740, the same year when it was also burned. This Church was dedicated to St. Joseph and its annual celebration of fiesta is observed every 19th day of May.

St. Joseph the Worker is the titular patron saint of the municipality of Milaor. The vision of the parish is to continue forming basic ecclesial communities, locally called as SKK or Saradit na Kristiyanong Komunidad. The locus and focus of this dream of the Church is by clustering all the neighboring families. Each cluster is composed of 15-20 families.
