Welcome to the Diocese of San Pablo!
November 28th each year is a special date for the Diocese of San Pablo in Laguna. It commemorates the beginning of this particular local Church in the Southern Tagalog region of Luzon. The Diocese of San Pablo, erected through the Apostolic Letter Ecclesiarum per ampla on Nov. 28, 1966, was the last of the four ecclesiastical units carved out of the Diocese of Lipa since this was created as a separate diocese from the Archdiocese of Manila in 1910. The first was the Apostolic Prefecture of Mindoro in 1936, then the Diocese of Lucena in 1950, followed by the Prelature of Infanta in 1951 and finally the Diocese of San Pablo in 1966 (the canonical erection took place in April 18, 1967), which comprises the City of San Pablo and the whole province of Laguna.
