Pangasinan Islands Philippines
The religion of the people of Pangasinan is predominantly Christian, although few are strict believers and continue to practice their indigenous beliefs and rituals, like most of the people of the Philippines. Spanish and American missionaries introduced Christianity to Pangasinan. Prior to the Spanish conquest in 1571, the predominant religion of the people of Pangasinan was similar to the indigenous religion of the highland Igorot or the inhabitants of the Cordillera Administrative Region on the island of Luzon who mostly retained their indigenous culture and religion. Pangasinan was also influenced by Hinduism, and Buddhism before the introduction of Christianity.
The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Lingayen-Dagupan, Pangasinan is Most Reverend Oscar V. Cruz.
Pangasinan is known as a land of miracles. The main pilgrimage centers of Pangasinan are the Shrine of Our Lady of Manaoag, which is reputed to be the pilgrimage capital of northern Luzon; the Shrine of Our Lord Jesus Christ the Divine Treasure (Senor Divino Tesoro), which is known to be a patron of healing, in Calasiao; and the Saint Dominic de Guzman Parish Church in San Carlos City.
