The parish of St. Michael The Archangel was created as a separate parish from Kawit on January 18, 1792 by virtue of the Royal Cedula issued by Ferdinand VI, King of Spain, to the Spanish Governor General in the Philippines. It was established in 1669 and was constructed using bamboos, straws and nipa leaves.   It  was during the  term of  Fr. Mariano Gomes  from   1824  to 1872  (48 years ) that the  church, known once as the oldest church in Cavite, was  renovated   with  the  present architectural  structure made of  adobe and  tegula. Unequipped with modern-day concrete cement mix, thousands of duck egg whites were utilized to bond the huge boulders of adobe.
