Fr. Josemaria Salutan Luengo is the self-appointed and co-adopted chaplain of the Tabaco Family. It is to him and his established Mater Dei College, Formation Center and Mission House in Tubigon, Bohol, Philippines 6329, that this page is dedicated. 

The purpose of this page is to inform the users of the website of the heritage of their ancestors and to enlighten their knowledge that richly extends way before the Americans, Spaniards and Christianity.
