The construction in 1954 of the Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel began at the same time the Order of Discalced Carmelites was founded in the Archdiocese of Manila. A piece of property along Broadway Street was acquired to start the difficult task of building, not only a religious house of Carmelite Irish Friars, but also a shrine in honor of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. On December 31, 1954, the cornerstone of the church was blessed by the Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines, Archbishop Egidio Vagnozzi. Ten years later, the Shrine of Mary was inaugurated on the feast of Mt. Carmel, with Rufino Cardinal Santos as main celebrant. In 1975, after a lot od improvement and development in rreligious activities and the active participation of the faithful in the community, the Mt. Carmel Shrine was elevated to a parish church, and Fr. Paul O'Sullivan was appointed parish priest. He was installed by the auxillary bishop of Manila, the Most Rev. Juan Velasco, O.P [One of the parish priests of the Mount Carmel Shrine-Parish became the present Bishop Rolando Tirona of the Prelature of Infanta. On July 16, 2000 the Mt. Carmel Shrine-Parish celebrated its silver anniversary as a parish.
