Our Lady of Lourdes Church

Our Lady of Lourdes Church or Salasa Church (Pangasinan) is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. It was built under Father Francisco Barroso in the year 1747-1748. It was renovated and repaired during 1874 and 1885 under Father Juan Terres. This church was able to survive typhoons, floods, and erosion. There are so many plans to move this church to a different location but it never happened because of divine intervention.

This was not my first time to visit this church, I’ve visited this church several times. We attended a wedding, funeral or Sunday Mass. My husband’s family is a Catholic so they attended mass here. A few weeks ago, after going to the cemetery my in-laws decided to drop by here.

We noticed a lot of improvements in the church, ang ganda na ng loob and they also have a Station of the Cross na beside the church.
