“SAN PEDRO” BELL TO BE RETURNED
Written by Myrna G. Romero   

A long lost treasure of Sts. Peter and Paul Parish, the San Pedro Bell (known as Barry Bell), will soon be returned to its rightful place. Mr. Dennis L. Wright met with Mayor Martin P. de Guzman III and Rev. Father Ronald Raymund Chan on August 26 and discussed the possibility of returning the significant bell.

In 1883, Gobernadorcillo Mariano Balancio (who became a Mayor of Bauang from 1865-1866 and 1881-1882) and Lt. DD. Hilario Calica gave the bell to Father Mariano Garcia (who was Parish Priest of San Pedro in November 1872 – July 25, 1876 and August 25, 1877 – August 19, 1887)

The bell, an alloy of gold silver and copper was baptized as“San Pedro”. It was almost destroyed during the Philippine Insurrection. The advancement of American forces prevented “San Pedro” and other bells in the Philippines from being melted down and made into guns and other war ammunitions.

Thomas Barry (Class 1877) who served in the Philippines during the Insurrection, who became the 27th superintendent was instrumental in sending the bell to United States Military Academy West Point, USA in 1915.
