The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Jaro is an ecclesiastical territory or diocese of the Catholic Church in the Philippines. The Metropolitan Cathedral of St. Elizabeth of Hungary in Jaro (one of six districts of Iloilo City, Iloilo on Panay Island, Western Visayas) is the seat of the archdiocese. Popularly known as Jaro Cathedral, it is also referred to as the National Shrine of Our Lady of Candles.[1]

The Archdiocese of Jaro is one of the oldest sees in the country. It was created a diocese by virtue of a papal bull of Pope Pius IX on May 27, 1865,[2] according to a document signed by Archbishop Gregorio Martinez, then Archbishop of Manila, under whole ecclesiastical province the new diocese belonged as suffragan. Its first Bishop was Fray Mariano Cuartero, O.P., Dominican Missionary in the Philippines, who took possession of the diocese, on April 25, 1868.[3]

On April 10, 1910, it lost some territory to establish the Diocese of Zamboanga and Apostolic Prefecture of Palawan. Much later, three other ecclesiastical jurisdictions were established from parts of its territory: Diocese of Bacolod (15 July 1932), Apostolic Prefecture of Mindoro (2 July 1936), and Diocese of Capiz (27 January 1951).[4]

On 29 June 1951, it was raised as a Metropolitan Archdiocese by His Holiness Pope Pius XII.[5] But again, on 24 March 1962, it lost some territory to establish the Territorial Prelature of San Jose de Antique.[6]

At present, the Archdiocese of Jaro covers the provinces of Iloilo and Guimaras, an island off Iloilo. San Jose de Antique on Panay, Bacolod, San Carlos and Kabankalan in Negros Occidental, are suffragans.[7]

As of the year 2004, out of a population of 2,232,931, 92.00% or 2,054,296 are Catholic, making Jaro the 8th largest diocese in the Philippines.[8] In 2015, the archdiocese has 92 parishes, 256 priests (173 diocesan, 83 religious), 644 lay religious (121 brothers, 523 sisters), 65 seminarians. In the same year, the Catholic population numbers 2,641,965 Catholics or 83.1% of 3,177,462 total residents of its entire territory covering 5,304 km².[9] The province is predominantly rural with 72.7 percent of the total population residing in rural areas and only 27.3 percent in urban area. Agriculture, forestry and fishing are the leading major industries.

Its titutar patron saint is St. Elizabeth of Hungary, whose feast is celebrated on November 17.[10]

History[edit]

The front facade of Jaro Cathedral showing the stairs above the door leading to the statue of Our Lady of Candles.

The diocese of Jaro whose Patron Saint is St. Elizabeth of Hungary was officially erected by virtue of the Papal bull "Qui Ab Initio" of Pope Pius IX. The bull was issued in Rome on May 27, 1865. On October 10, 1867 the decree took effect and Jaro was made an Episcopal See, according to the document signed by Dr. D. Gregorio Meliton Martinez, then Archbishop of Manila and executor-delegate of the decree. It is worth noting that this "decretum executorium" was also signed by the Rev. Jose Burgos, Pro-Secretary, a secular priest who became one of the outstanding martyr-heroes of the country. Jaro was separated from the now Archdiocese of Cebu and became a suffragan diocese of the Archdiocese of Manila. Its territories at creation comprised the islands of Panay, (now composed of the provinces of Iloilo, Capiz, Antique and Aklan), Guimaras, Negros (now the twin provinces of Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental), Romblon and Palawan, as well as the provinces of Cotabato, Zamboanga, Davao and Sulu of Mindanao. Sr. Dr. Fr. Mariano Cuartero, OP, became its first bishop on April 25, 1868.

In the 20th century the diocese was further divided to form new ecclesiastical jurisdictions. Zamboanga was made a separate diocese in 1910, while Palawan was made an apostolic prelature in the same year; then Bacolod in 1933, Capiz in 1951 and finally the Prelature of San Jose, Antique in 1962 as suffragans.

Concurrently with the elevation of Jaro to an archdiocese, the first Filipino bishop, the Most Rev. Jose Maria Cuenco, DD, PhD, LIB, was raised to the rank of metropolitan archbishop, thereby making him the first Archbishop of Jaro.

On January 17, 1976, Pope Paul VI elevated Capiz to the rank of archdiocese, with the dioceses of Romblon and Kalibo as its suffragans. The Archdiocese of Jaro was left with the dioceses of Bacolod (which eventually was divided into three (3) dioceses, to wit, Bacolod, San Carlos, and Kabankalan) and San Jose de Antique as its suffragans.

On 21 February 1981, Pope John Paul II visited the archdiocese and crowned the image of Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria at the facade of Jaro Cathedral.[11]

Last 2012, the relics of Saint Clare and the pilgrim image of St. Pedro Calungsod visited the archdiocese.

Last March 15–17, 2013, the pilgrim relics of St. Therese of the Child Jesus visited the archdiocese a third time.

Bishops[edit]

The current archbishop is the Most Reverend Jose Romeo Orquejo Lazo D.D. He was born on 23 January 1949 in San Jose de Buenavista, Antique He attended the St. Vincent Ferrer Major Seminary in Jaro, and was ordained a priest on 01 April 1975 in San Jose de Buenavista, Antique. After his ordination, he pursued higher studies at the East Asian Pastoral Institute, Quezon City in and the Institute of Pastoral Theology in Berkeley, California, USA.

In 2003, Bishop Lazo was appointed Bishop of the Diocese of Kalibo, and was ordained bishop on 29 December 2003. Pope Benedict XVI appointed him as bishop of the Diocese of San Jose de Antique in 2009. On 14 February 2018, Pope Francis appointed him as the Archbishop of Jaro following the resignation of Archbishop Angel N. Lagdameo.[12] Archbishop Lagdameo served the Archdiocese for 17 years.
