A 400 yr old - Coral Stone Church

Did you know that the Our Lady of the Pillar Parish Church in Morong, Bataan is a 400 year old coral stone church? Based on research, “Coral Stone” is a trade-name for Fossilized Limestone. Limestones are a sedimentary rock consisting mainly of calcium carbonate. This type of limestone is highly fossiliferous with calcium rich remains of ancient marine creatures trapped in the sediments of the banks or coral reefs where they once lived.

The Church Altar

This church was established in 1607, the oldest church in the whole province of Bataan. This Church was built originally by the people of Morong under the direction of the Spanish Colonizer. The roof was recently remodeled. This church has daily 5:30 PM masses and Sunday masses at 6:00AM and 6:00PM.
