From being a part of the Parish of Espiritu Santo, the newborn parish erected on August 28 1951 by His Eminence Manila Archbishop Gabriel Reyes and Fr. Candido Bernal was the first parish priest and was installed by Msgr. Narciso Gatpaydan, Vicar Forane of Espiritu Santo.
Fr. Bernal held his first public mass, ‘Misa pro populo’ on October 4 1951 in a chapel that preceded the parish, the Resurreccion chapel. He rent temporarily in a dormitory in Simoun and Crisostomo streets.
The present site was formerly of a 13-hectare lot called ‘Lumang Tinapay’, a swampy area where grass and kangkong thrived. The parish started with a small wooden chapel at an initial fund of P5000 provided by Archbishop Gabriel Reyes.
He immediately appointed a person to manage the church construction. The cornerstone laying of the permanent church was officiated by the first Filipino prince of the church,
