San Bartolome Church, Malabon City

Here are some photos that I took last Sunday (March 21,2010) at the San Bartolome Church in Malabon City:

Tambobong, the old name of Malabon City, was founded as an "Iglesia (church) of Manila on May 21, 1599. It was then composed of two small islands namely Navotas and Maysilo.

On May 17, 1614, Tambobong was established as an independent parish under the advocation of San Bartolome the Apostle with the Augustinian Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Luiz Gutierrez, O.S.A., as the first Vicar Prior.
