Maasin Cathedral

 

The Maasin City Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption of Maasin, is a baroque Roman Catholic church in Maasin City, Southern Leyte.

One of the nation's oldest parishes resides in the church. A 200-year-old antique statue of the "Patrona," also known as Nuestra Señora de la Asunción de Maasin, is also housed in the cathedral. The Maasin parish was founded by successive waves of missionaries, including the Jesuits, Augustinians, and lastly Franciscans. 

People in the City of Maasin, Southern Leyte, developed a strong devotion to the revered image of Our Lady of the Assumption. This area is known for its picturesque tourist destinations, particularly for nature lovers. Numerous miracles have been attributed to her intercession over the years, but the most well-known is the defense of her chosen city against various disasters. The original wooden image and the ivory altar and processional picture of Our Lady of the Assumption were both housed at her Cathedral in Manila.
