A bamboo church was constructed by Franciscan Father Saro where people could gather for catechesis and worship in 1676. The bamboo church was replaced by a church of stone more than half a century later, in 1733, and it was around this time that the parish is said to have welcomed the patron for their church and community-St. Michael the Archangel, protector of the people and of the land. The devotion to St. Michael is so strong to this day that the municipality of Jalajala is practically synonymous to St. Michael.
