Santo Tomas Church

As aparish, Santo Tomas was erected on March 15, 1974 by Archbishop Federico Limon. Prior to this date, the town was a ‘visita” of aAlcala. The church is situated in Santo Domingo, a barrio of the town of Santo Tomas.

Before 1898, Santo Tomas was a barrio of Alcala. Arango was its name as a barrio, Such a name derived from “inarang”, a name given to the fresh water shells which abound near the bank of the Agno river

In 1901, Santo Tomas was fused with Alcala for economic reasons. But through the
Efforts of the leding citizens of the town, Santo Tomas was recreated as a town in 1908.
