Natividad Church

The town of Natividad was created by the Philippine Commission on December 25, 1904. The name Natividad was given in honor of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ. The town formerly a barrio of San Nicolas, was then inhabited by immigrants from the Ilocos region who spoke the BAGO dialect, and so as a brrio it was known as Caaguan.

Four some time after its foundation, Natividad had no resident priest, the town being a “visita” of Tayug. Foundation of the present church was laid in the year 1927 by Father Reynaldo Rola. The first parish priest of the town was Fr. Alfredo Obedoza.
