PAST PARISH PRIESTS

Note:  Before 1988, all four churches were consider as one parish by themselves, thus a parish priest for each of the four churches. However, in 1988, when the four churches were amalgmated into one parish, then it started that there is only one parish priest (and assistant, if any) for City Parish.
