Alaminos Church 2

The parish of St. Mark the Evangelist was erected on June 1969, comprising five barrios of Alaminos centered in Alos and serving the spiritual needs of 2,300 families. It was Archbishop Mariano Madriaga who chose. St. Mark the Evangelist as the patron of the church, with Father Asterio Doque as the first Parish Priest.

The spiritual needs of Alos used to be taken care by the parish priest of Mabini. Because of these spiritual needs and the growing religious fervor of the people, they petitioned the Archishop to send them a resident pastor. And to show their sincerity and cooperation in their request, they constructed their own parish church before the arrival of the parish preist.
