Fr. Manuel Maramba, OSB. At 11, he gave his first public performance at the Bamboo Organ and became the official accompanist of the Las Piñas Boys Choir at 14 years old. He was the youngest finalist to participate in the National Music Competitions for Young Artists piano competition in 1978.
Immediately after graduating from high school, he was sent on full scholarship to the University for Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria where he earned, with distinction, the degree of Master of Arts in Church Music. He also received a Teacher's Certificate in Organ.
A 2007 lawsuit, also settled, alleged Maramba sexually abused an altar boy four times in 1976 and 1977. The alleged victim's parents had encouraged their son to spend time with Maramba because they wanted him to become a priest, the suit stated. When the boy's parents learned of the alleged misconduct, they informed the diocese, but officials took no action, court documents state.
Maramba, a Filipino priest, served at the Las Cruces parish from 1976-1977 and at the Newman Center in Silver City. He was recalled to the Philippines in 1977 by his abbey. He still serves as a Benedictine Monk of the Abbey of Our Lady of Montserrat in that country.
