Kasanggayahan was defined by Father Jose Ofracio…” When the fields are green and the grains are golden, when the machine works well and all business prosper, when the bird in the sky chirps freely, and man on earth are peacefully happy, in Sorsogon it is Kasanggayan,meaning a life of Peace, Progress and Prosperity.”

That vision of Father Ofracio is the aspiration of every Sorsoganon.
