TWO centuries-old churches are in need of repair, following last February’s earthquake that hit Cebu and Negros Oriental, said church heritage officials.

The Sta. Catalina de Alejandria Parish in Inayagan in Barangay Valladolid, Carcar is undergoing restoration work, but more coral stones have fallen from its façade since the quake, said Msgr. Carlito Pono of the Cebu Archdiocesan Commission on Church Heritage.

The church was originally established as the convent of the La Visitacion de la Nuestra Señora on June 21, 1599, according to the book Balaanong Bahandi (Sacred Treasures of the Archdiocese of Cebu).
