July 25, 2014 – Caibiran, Biliran celebrates the 98th annual town fiesta in honor of the life and deeds of St. James the Apostle. He is the patron and protector of the town of Caibiran.
The illustrious Apostle Senor Santiago, as the town folks fondly call him, is enshrined at the center of six great columns representing the rudiments of the town of Caibiran of which Santiago Apostol claims dominion over it. Six magnificent angels keep watch over the town while singing hymns of praises to the Majesty of God.
At the foot of the apostle is the spectacular fountain of the four great rivers of the town, namely: Salog Caibiran, Salog Tinago, Salog Calambis and Salog Mapula providing the much needed irrigation for the land to produce plenty for the nourishment and livelihood of all Caibiranhoon. The fountain of St. James is owned to the generosity of Mr. & Mrs. Marciano & Toepista Vermug. The town parish priest is Rev. Fr. Bedel Mocorro.

St. James was the son of Zebedee and his brother John were among the twelve disciples of Our Lord. They, together with Peter, were privileged to behold the Transfiguration to witness the healing of Peter’s mother-in-law and the raising of the daughter of Jairus and to be called aside to watch and pray with Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane on the night before his death.
