Olutanga Island is composed of three towns: Mabuhay, Talusan and Subanipa. In the whole island, there are only four priests and all of us are SVD missionaries. Fr. Danny Noval, SVD and I are in Subanipa while Fr. Mannix Suico, SVD and Fr. Joseph Audiencia, SVD are in Mabuhay.
Our SVD parish here in Subanipa is Nuestra Señora De Los Remedios. It became a parish on the year 1953 though the initiative of Fr. Raimundo Argarate, SJ after he was exiled from China.
Upon the invitation of the Prelature of Ipil in year 2005, the SVD established its first mission stations in Mabuhay and Olutanga for pastoral as well as inter-faith initiatives of the SVD Philippine Southern Province.

Believe it or not: the paintings were made 50 years ago
