GUIUAN, Eastern Samar-Several skeletal remains were recovered inside a church here that is undergoing repair works on January 1.
The skeletal remains, comprising of skulls and bones, were discovered by some construction workers, said Andy Egargo, parish priest of the Immaculate Conception Parish.
He said that the skeletal remains were found beneath the choir loft and the right side of the church’s wall which was being destroyed to give way for the repair of the church which sustained damage when the town was hit by supertyphoon “Yolanda” in 2013.
The priest claimed that the Spanish-era church could have its own catacomb where priests could have been buried there.
The discovered skeletal remains are to be buried at the Catholic cemetery.
