calamba church

Jose Rizal Mercado was baptized at the San Juan Bautista Church at Calamba in Laguna, on June 22 1861, roughly 3 days after his birth. The parish priest presiding over the ceremony was Rev. Fr. Rufino Collantes and his godfather was Rev. Fr. Pedro Casañas.

The small church has undergone several major revisions through the years. It was rightfully declared as a National Historical Landmark last August 19, 1976.

Brennan is an electronics engineer by profession. From time to time, he gets to travel beyond his office cubicle, try new restaurants or catch up with his terribly long list of unread books. He likes museums, spicy food and talking with habal-habal drivers. For now, he's still deciding on whether to play Pokémon GO or not.
