Our Lady of Pentecost Parish was founded on May 23, 1999 by His Eminence Jaime Cardinal Sin. It was a parish that started with no structure, no lot, no church, no office, and no convent. Weekend Masses were held in the barangay basketball court, while weekday Masses were held in the barangay basketball court, while weekday Masses were held in the garage of a borrowed house. This house was the temporary chapel, office and convent in the parish’s first 3 years of existence.
In 2002, the parish moved to a modest house and lot (468sq m) at #12 F. dela Rosa cor C. Salvador Sts. It provided the parish a “home” they could call their own. The sala was turned into a chapel, the dining room into a parish office, the master’s bedroom into a conference room and the rest into a convent.
In 2003, the parish finally acquired a 981 sq. m property across its present chapel, on which it plans to build its church. Constructing this church is the next big project of the parish! As the parish continues to grow and flourish into a compassionate and serving community, the need for a dedicated place for worship and fellowship, and facilities to develop social and pastoral projects is essential.
This parish church is and will be built and supported by the strength, patience and perseverance of the parishioners and its benefactors under the patronage of Our Lady of Pentecost.
