Sanctuario de San Pedro Bautista stands on holy ground because its patron saint, San Pedro Bautista, lived there. Very few parishes in the world can claim such sanctity and honor. San Pedro Bautista established the foundation of this church in 1590. He found an elevated area of 250 hectares, which was thickly wooded, surrounded by a creek, and with eight water springs. Fray Pedro Bautista built a little convent and a chapel of bamboo and nipa. Then he dedicated these to Our Lady of Montecelli. In 1699, a church made of stone was built; the convent was restructured and was dedicated to the newly beatified Blessed Pedro Bautista and his companion martyrs.
On November 11, 1932, the church community was decreed a parish, and it was named after its founder and patron saint, San Pedro Bautista. Before the decree, the parish belonged to the parish of Caloocan. On February 25, 2001, the parish church was declared an archdiocesan shrine, and named Sanctuario de San Pedro Bautista.
