Transcript of The Secularization Movement

Among other reasons they cited the Filipinos’ brown skin, lack of education, and inadequate experience.

bishops insisted on visiting the parishes that were being run by regular priests. But the regular priests refused these visits.
1774, Archbishop Basilio Santa Justa
decided to uphold the diocese’s authority over the parishes and accepted the resignations of the regular priests. He assigned secular priests to take their place. Since there were not enough seculars to fill all the vacancies the Archbishop hastened the ordination of Filipino seculars
A royal decree was also issued on November 9, 1774, which provided for the secularization of all parishes or the transfer of parochial administration from the regular friars to the secular priests.

His request was granted on the following conditions: (1) Filipino priests should pass the National Board Examination, (2) The topnotcher of the board examination would automatically become the Parish Priest of the Manila Cathedral,

(3) The Parish Priest of the Manila Cathedral would be ex officio the Capitular Vicar of the Cathedral Canons, and (4) In the demise of the Archbishop of Manila, he becomes ipso facto the Acting Archbishop of Manila.
