via Philippine Inquirer, 16 December 2019: Sto. Niño Parish Church, one of the churches damaged by the Bohol earthquake in 2013, reopens after repair.
The church’s facade was damaged but the quake revealed the church’s original façade which could have been made by the Jesuits, and was hidden when the Augustinian Recollects came in early 1800.
Inside, the left wall of the altar sank a few inches deep. The side walls of the baptismal chamber was damaged.
Masses were held at the makeshift church made of nipa and bamboo at the town plaza for three years to keep the community’s faith alive.
