The Diocese of Baguio partners with the University of Santo Tomas Graduate School – Center for Conservation of Cultural Property and Environment in the Tropics to conduct the first-ever Church-initiated heritage mapping project which will document the heritages of the diocese.
The cultural mapping activities were participated by 3 vicariates, composed of 26 parishes across the Province of Benguet. The main objective of the mapping activities is to document the natural, built, movable and intangible heritage that makes up the church heritage of the diocese. Also, this will create awareness and appreciation of the church heritage amongst parishioners of the diocese and provide basis for the book development project for the 15th anniversary celebration of the diocese in July 2019.
The 2-module activities will run for three months and officially started on January 22, 2019 in Baguio City Diocesan Pastoral Center in Bakakeng, Baguio City.
