Cagayan de Oro: San Lorenzo Ruiz Church

San Lorenzo Ruiz is a Chinese-Filipino Catholic Community Church located at the hilltop of Gusa in Cagayan de Oro, a  fully air-conditioned church.

Patron Saint, Lorenzo Ruiz is the first Filipino saint. He is also the first Filipino martyred for the Christian Faith. Lorenzo Ruiz was a layman, married, and had two sons and a daughter. Born in Binondo, Manila. He was educated in the school of the Dominicans. He served as an altar boy and later was a helper and clerk-sacristan in the church of Binondo. He was a member of the Confraternity of the Rosary. He made his living probably as a calligrapher.  He and the fifteen companions, martyred in the same persecution, were beatified by Pope John Paul II in Manila on February 18, 1981 and elevated to full honors of the altar by canonization on October 18, 1987 in Rome. Their feast day is on September 28th.
