On November 28, 2020, the Our Lady of Miraculous Medal Parish in Talisay, Hilongos, Southern Leyte, celebrated its patronal feast. The celebration was presided by the Most Rev. Precioso D. Cantillas, SDB, D.D., the Bishop of Maasin.
The celebration was held in the new and beautiful, although not fully finished, church, which construction started in January 2018.
The celebration was a part of the 4th Feast of the Patron and was preceded by a nine-day Novena and other activities.
The official SCJ presence in the Diocese of Maasin started on June 11, 2016, when the local bishop entrusted to the Congregation of the Priests of the Sacred Heart (SCJ) a part of the Immaculate Conception Parish in Hilongos, the St. Pope John Paul II Southern Mission Territory, with its main chapel in the Barangay Talisay, later on, Miraculous Medal Quasi-Parish. Last year on November 30, 2019, it was declared a parish. At the moment there are three SCJs assigned there: Fr. Arthur Guvera, Fr. Christopher Alburo, and Fr. Josepatro Gier, Jr.
