Immaculate Conception Parish of Kiblawan, Circa 1969

A rare photo of the old Immaculate Conception Parish of Kiblawan (Davao del Sur), Circa 1969 during a seminar dated September 12-14. Encircled here is my uncle/lolo Bonifacio Fiel, cousin of my Lolo Feliciano, who became the vice-mayor of the town as a result of the snap election in the 80s. Pangitaa pod inyong mga lolo diria.
