The adoption of the name Corella was made at the behest of Fr Jose Maria Cañabas, then the parish priest of Baclayon and endorsed by Fr Felix Gullen, the first Spanish priest. Corella was a name of a village in Navarra, Spain where this town's patroness, Nuestra Señora del Villar, showered miracles.The creation of this town was due to the efforts of its inhabitants including Isidoro Ramo, who became its first gobernadorcillo.The stone church and the convent were constructed during the tenure of Fr Felix Gullen and completed by later priests, one of them being Fr Dionisio Llorete who also spearheaded the erection of two stone school buildings and the municipal building during the term of the gobernadorcillo, Celedonio Sayon. But the construction of Corella's present concrete church began in 1924 under Fr Pedro Montelbon, the parish priest of Tagbilaran who took over the administration of the Corella parish after the incumbent, Fr Eugenio Desamparados left.
