St. Catherine of Alexandria

The church in Carcar dedicated to St. Catherine of Alexandria is among the few that exists in the Philippines. The other known church established in her honor is the St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral in Dumaguete City.
Sta. Catalina de Alejandria
Often depicted holding a sword, a palm and a spiked broken wheel, devotion to St. Catherine is pervasive throughout the town.
On November 24, the 2nd Festival of Lights depicting her life through tableaus and the solemn procession along Sta. Catalina street will cap the annual festivities.
Note: Image above of the saint is owned by the Noel family and can be viewed at the church until the festivities are over.
