Along with her sister Dionisia Talangpaz, she established the "Beaterio de San Sebastian de Calumpang" (now the "Congregation of the Augustinian Recollect Sisters"), in 1719. The Augustinian Recollect Sisters is the second Filipino congregation of women religious founded in the Philippines, after the Religious of the Virgin Mary established by Venerable Ignacia del Espíritu Santo.

Religious life[edit]

Cecilia was born on July 16, 1693, in Calumpit, Bulacan to half-Kapampangan parents. Together with her older sister Dionisia, they settled down near the shrine of the Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Manila. Their devout life attracted the attention of the Recollects who were taking care of the shrine and by July 1725, the sisters received the habit of tertiaries and were gathered in a beaterium.
