SACRED HEART OF JESUS, THE CHAPEL

The Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Morning Breeze started as a chapel in 1963 with the community then originally a part of Our Lady of Grace Parish. Every Sunday, Holy Mass was celebrated by the Oblate Fathers led by the late Most Rev. Antonino F. Nepomuceno, D.D., OMI. Oblate scholastics assisted the priests in their pastoral work in the community. Some of them were the late Most Rev. Benjamin de Jesus, D.D., OMI and Most Rev. Orlando Quevedo, DD, OMI, of the Archdiocese of Cotabato.

In August 1963, His Eminence the late Rufino Cardinal Santos, D.D., established the Sts. Peter and John Parish. The community of Morning Breeze became a part of the new parish along with the baranggay of Bagong Barrio, a portion of Baranggay Potrero within the east side of McArthur Highway and the Araneta University campus.

Still a part of the St. Peter and St. John Parish, the Sacred Heart Chapel was inaugurated by Most Rev. Pedro N. Bantique, D.D., Auxiliary Bishop of Manila, on December 13, 1964.

SACRED HEART OF JESUS, THE PARISH

The Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish was finally established by His Eminence Jaime Cardinal Sin, D.D., Archbishop of Manila, in 1984, culminating twenty long years of fervent hopes and prayers of the people of Morning Breeze. Rev. Fr. Francisco Bagadiong was the first Parish Priest.

Thereafter, under the leadership of the Parish Priest and the Parish Pastoral Council, the kind and religious people of Morning Breeze initiated the construction of a new and imposing Church in honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

On April 1, 1990, His Eminence Jaime Cardinal Sin, D.D. blessed and dedicated the altar of the new Church under the title of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, Morning Breeze Subdivision, in the Ecclesiastical District of Caloocan, Malabon and Navotas, Archdiocese of Manila.

Rev. Fr. Igmedio A. Caborrubias was installed as the second Parish Priest of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish on June 4, 1990, replacing Fr. Bagadiong.

On August 1, 2001, Rev. Fr. Rufino “Gigi” P. Yabut assumed administration of the Parish and his pastoral duties as incoming Parish Priest, replacing Fr. Caborrubias, and on December 1, 2001, he was formally installed as the third Parish Priest by His Excellency Most Rev. Teodoro C. Bacani, Jr., D.D., District Bishop of the Ecclesiastical District of Kalookan, Malabon and Navotas.

MAJOR RENOVATION OF CHURCH AND CONVENT BUILDING

During the period from September to November 2001, Fr. Gigi initiated major repairs and renovation of the Church and Convent buildings and premises of the SHJ Parish which were visibly called for in the 12-year old facilities.

With generous help and encouragement from the archdiocese, friends and benefactors from other parishes, and the ever–loyal SHJ parishioners, the completion of this first project for the enhancement of the SHJ Parish Church was completed on December 1, 2001 by way of the repainting and renovation of the Church, the Sanctuary and the Adoration Chapel, and provision for a new Parish Office, Parish Priest’s Office and Parish Function Rooms.

As space and funds permitted, additional facilities, adjuncts to the Church building, were added in 2002 and 2003. Such as, the Sacred Heart of Jesus Pastoral Center which provides a venue for Parish activities, Council meetings, livelihood programs, and social events; furthermore, the St. Margaret Mary Alacoque Hall, the San Lorenzo Ruiz Multi-purpose Hall, the Medical-Dental Clinic and the Parish Ossuary which address the immediate personal needs of the parishioners.

The pastoral program thrusts have been directed not only on building the Church but more importantly, on building up the community: the strengthening of the faith-life of the individual, the family and the community, returning to the sacraments, increasing lay involvement in Parish activities and church organizations, reviving Street Masses, developing awareness and a sense of responsibility and united action in community affairs, e.g. peace and order of surroundings, etc.

The devotion of the Sacred Heart has blessed the parish over the last twenty years with many active and vibrant lay organizations which made the celebration of the liturgy and parish life truly vibrant and re-invigorating. Moreover, new devotees from the office workers, in the schools and hospital, around the Church have been drawn closer to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Enthronement of the Sacred Heart in every home is a continuing campaign drive. Activities in honor of the Sacred Heart include the Novena, special imposition of the Sacred Heart Scapular, First Friday Holy Hour, and the annual celebration of the Solemn Feast of the Scared Heart, in June.

May the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish be a haven to the weary...to the troubled…and the wounded heart. The Sacred Heart invites one and all to confide in Him for “His burden is light and His yoke is easy.”

BRIEF HISTORY

In 1964 when Cristituto Gali, one of the few pioneers of Bagong Barrio, was elected barrio captain, he spearheaded the construction of a chapel in their community. He donated his own house in General Tirona and had it converted into a small chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes. After six months, the people were able to purchase a lot between Gen. Tirona and G. de Jesus and a small semi-concrete chapel was built. This became the center chapel. Later on, the community was divided into five local areas and in each area a chapel was built; Sta. Lutgarda, Milagrosa, P. Gomez, Centro and East Bagong Barrio.

In 1970, the lay leaders from the five local chapels united themselves and petitioned for the declaration of Bagong Barrio as an independent parish. In 1972, the petition was approved and Cardinal Santos canonically erected the parish of Our Lady of Lourdes. Later that year, Rev. Fr. Jose Fajardo was installed as the first parish priest. Rev. Fr. Pedro Vicedo announced the change of the titular of the parish from Our Lady of Lourdes to Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament. It was also during the incumbency of Fr. Fajardo that the following mandated organizations were established: Catholic Women’s League, Matrons of the Holy Eucharist, and the Foster Father of the Holy Eucharist.

In 1973, the right wing of the church was extended, its upper floor converted into a rectory and the altar renovated.In 1975, pastoral administration of the parish was turned over to the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. Rev. Fr. Romeo Villanueva, OMI, organized the local councils of the local areas and the Pastoral Council as the coordinating body. He also introduced the concept of the Basic Christian Community as the thrust of the parish. As soon as the Pastoral Council was organized, they petitioned that the titular of the parish be restored to Our Lady of Lourdes (Birhen ng Lourdes). On April 20, 1976, Archbishop Jaime L. Cardinal Sin approved the petition.

Birhen Ng Lujan Quasi Parish
Established: May 8, 2010
#56 Malvar Ext. Bagong Barrio Caloocan City
Tel. No.: (02) 365-52-99
PARISH PRIEST: Rev. Fr. Luis Edurdo F. Zapata,IVE
PAROCHIAL VICAR: Rev. Fr. Salvador Curutchet ,IVE  / Rev. Fr. James B. Ty, IVE

BRIEF HISTORY

The Sta. Lutgarda chapel was the first chapel built in Bagong Barrio. In 1960, Bro. Francisco Quiambao brought the image of Sta. Lutgarda to the chapel from Macabebe, Pampangga. The feast of Sta. Lutgarda is celebrated every 15th of June but in Bagong Barrio the feast is held every third Sunday of May in thanksgiving for the end of harvest season in Macabebe, Pampanga.

The cursillistas maintained the chapel. They invited priests from other parishes to celebrate masses there. In 1970, the faithful of Bagong Barrio wrote a petition to Cardinal Rufino Santos, the first cardinal of the Philippines, to elevate Bagong Barrio into a parish. Fr. Edelberto Santos was the one tasked by the Cardinal to conduct a three month survey to explore the possibility of making Bagong Barrio a parish. The petition was approved and a committee was formed to oversee the construction of a new church for the parish. The proximity of Sta Lutgarda chapel to the Sacred Heart Parish made the committee choose another site for the new church. Hence, the church was built at its current site and the Birhen ng Lourdes parish was established.

In 1972, the Sta. Lutgarda chapel was moved to Gen Malvar Extension, its current location. Fr. Romeo Villanueva, the first parish priest of Birhen ng Lourdes organized the first Sta. Lutgarda Local Council. In 1975, Bgy. Capt. Jose Laxamana became the council’s first president. The following followed thereafter: 1980 – Bro. Antonio Buena, 1985 – Bro. Arturo Castro, 1990 – Sis. Nena De Torres, 2000 – Sis. Jean Devibar, 2002 – Sis. Nena De Torres, 2004 – Sis. Eleanor Pador.

Several renovations were made to the chapel’s structure through the years. During the term of Bro. Arturo Castro, the structure was upgraded from wood to semi-concrete. The façade, the bell tower, the kitchen and the comfort room were built during the term of Sis. Nena De Torres.

On May 25, 2005 Bishop Deogracias Iñigues Jr. D.D. assigned Fr. Luis Eduardo F. Zapata, IVE, as Parish Priest and Fr. Salvador Curuchet, IVE as Assistant Priest of the proposed Quasi-Parish comprising of ten Barangays in Bagong Barrio West. Now under the care of the Institute of the Incarnate Word, Sta. Lutgarda, chapel was elevated into a church. The priests celebrated masses not only on Sundays but on Saturdays and weekdays as well.

To get to know the people of the new quasi-parish, Fr. Luis and Fr. Salvador sought the help of the SSVM Sisters to conduct a week-long mission to visit the homes of the parishioners. The priests blessed the peoples’ dwellings while the Sisters conducted interviews. This way they were able to gather information about the families and the community within the ten barangays under the quasi-parish. They realized that many would still attend mass in the nearby parishes and that many children were not baptized. Fr. Luis asked permission from the Bishop to conduct baptism at the Sta. Lutgarda church for free. His request was granted.

On October 15, 2006, Fr. Luis Zapata appointed a new set of officers among the laity serving in the church. Planning for the construction of a new church for the quasi-parish started with the constitution of the church construction committee. The committee is composed of the following: Chairperson – Bro. Eulalio Trinidad Jr.; Co-chairman – Bro. Ricardo Espanillo; Treasurer – Bro. Danny Magday.

y God’s Providence different donation and benefactors appear and Fr. Luis met Architect Alex Ocampo of Angeles, Pampanga and Engineer Ceilito Ypil of Quezon City who offered their professional services for the church construction for free. Mr. Desiderio Domingo, a contractor and parishioner, was convinced by Sis. Nena De Torres to offer his services for free as well. His workers, however, received full payment for their work.

Through the tireless efforts of the parish priest and assistant priests, the SSVM Sisters and the Lay workers of the quasi-parish, various fund raisings were done. Financial help and pledges came from within the community and abroad, mostly, friends and benefactors of the Institute of the Incarnate Word. In the end, the “most beautiful house” in Bagong Barrio was constructed. On May 8, 2009, the church was dedicater after the patroness of the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word, the Virgin Mary of Lujan, in Argentina. On May 8, 2010, the new quasi-parish is established as the Birhen ng Lujan Quasi-Parish by Bishop Deogracias Iñiguez Jr. DD.

SAINT GABRIEL THE ARCHANGEL PARISH
Established: August 9, 1963
Araneta Avenue corner Caimito Road, Caloocan City
Tel. No.: 361-8106
PARISH PRIEST: Rev. Fr. Leandro M. Magnait
PAROCHIAL VICAR: Rev. Fr. Kennedy A. Neral


BRIEF HISTORY

ON AUGUST 21, 1963, the Archbishop of Manila, His Eminence Rufino J. Cardinal Santos created a new parish in Malabon, with Rev. Msgr. Pacifico Maria Mendoza as its parish priest. Msgr. Mendoza was given the huge task of building a parish out of nothing. Since there was no lot or even a temporary chapel in the vicinity, masses were held at the Manila Railroad Hospital or at the lawns of several private residences.

Finally, on September 1964, a 3, 312 square meter lot located at the corner of Araneta Avenue and Caimito Road was purchased, and on the 30th of November, construction started for the seat of the parish. At that time, parishioners had to bring their own chairs in the pew–less and door–less church.
After the organization of the first parish pastoral council in 1966, another construction, this time for the new church, was initiated. It was completed five years after. Msgr. Mendoza designed the image of Saint Gabriel and wrote a novena in the Archangel’s honor. It was in 1977 that Msgr. Mendoza was replaced by Rev. Fr. Alfred Santos; then by Rev. Fr. Norberto Habos; followed by Rev. Fr. Joseph Tambio, Rev. Msgr. Marcelino Montemayor, Rev. Msgr. Manuel Sebastian, Rev. Fr. Alex Yap, Rev. Fr. Nong Yebra, Rev. Fr. Frank Bagadiong, Rev. Fr. Nestor Gungon, Rev. Msgr. Wilfredo C. Paguio, and Rev. Msgr. Alex Amandy.

 

PATRON

Gabriel the Archangel

Angel Gabriel, one of the four high angels, is considered as the messenger of God. He is also the angel of Revelation and one of the six angels of death. The Bible depicts him as a man when in communion with humans. He is the same angel that provided the information to Daniel, and Mary, Jesus Christ’s mother.
Gabriel is also known in the Bible as a guardian angel, as he served as protector of the infant Abraham and Moses. He is one of the chief princes in heaven, along with Michael, and as well called as the “prince of fire”.

In Hebrew, Gabriel’s name literally means “the strength of God”. It is through this strength that the San Gabriel de Archangel Parish asks Gabriel, to give them strength and faith, and to intervene for them unto God.

SAINTS PETER AND JOHN PARISH
Established: August 9, 1963
34 Orange Road, Potrero, Malabon City
PARISH PRIEST: Rev. Fr. Rey O. Amante


BRIEF HISTORY

SAINTS PETER AND JOHN PARISH was a concept of Rev. Fr. Clemente Lopez, a priest from the Viconeta Chapel, the same chapel that served as the temporary site in 1963. He realized the need for a permanent church structure, as he negotiated for the acquisition of the new parish site with the Aranetas, who donated the steel structure of the church. The acquisition, though, was made possible through the Archbishop of Manila, His Eminence Rufino J. Cardinal Santos on August 1963. Don Salvador Araneta, given the pleasure of designating the parish, named it on the honor of the noble and modest Saint Peter, who represents the elderly, and of the brave and profound Saint John, who represents the youth.

The temporary transfer of the parish to the Sacred Heart Chapel in the Morning Breeze Subdivision saw the coming of a new parish priest in the person of Rev. Fr. Severino Pelayo, who introduced several parish organizations such as the Mother Butler’s Guild, and the Adoration Nocturna. He was also responsible for the partial flooring and roofing of the parish church. Fr. Severino Pelayo was later on replaced by Rev. Fr. Romeo Pelayo, then by Rev. Fr. Antonio Q. Benedicto, who completed the construction of the church. He built the Cursillo House and changed the Sacred Heart Chapel to a Rectory. He also organized the Saints Peter and John Choir and the first Lay Ministers of the Holy Communion.

Other priests, such as Rev. Fr. Eduardo Cruz, who succeeded Fr. Benedicto; Rev. Fr. Aloysius Aliño who spearheaded the renovation of the church and the creation of the Adoration Chapel and of the Reconciliation room, have helped the Saints Peter and John Parish to be what it is today.

In July 1999, Rev. Fr. Leandro Magnait was appointed as the new parish priest. Despite being a neophyte, he took the challenge of winning the hearts of the people by merging the bridges between God and man through vigorous partaking in each aspect of the church. He continues to shepherd the flock of the Saints Peter and John Parish in each sea that the church of God sails.


PATRONS

Saint Peter

Saint Peter, one of the apostles of Jesus Christ, is also considered as the first pope of the Roman Catholic Church. He was the builder of the early community in Christ, which suffered persecution from the hands of several Roman Emperors.

Peter was the son of John, whose brother Andrew was another apostle of Jesus. They were living through fishing, in the village of Bethsaida, on the province of Galilee. It was during their search in the seas that Jesus had called them to accompany Him and be “fishers of men”.

He was one of the closest followers of Jesus, having one of the only three to see Jesus’ transfiguration, as he was also assigned to be “petros”, which his name came from, on which the church should be built.

He traveled from Antioch unto several places such as Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia Minor and Bithynia, preaching the words of God. He also went to Rome, where he died in the hands of Emperor Nero by being crucified upside down. Several books are also attributed to him, such as the epistles, and the Gospel of Mark, as Mark was his disciple and interpreter.

Although Peter is famous for his denial of Jesus at the time that their the Lord was under trial, Peter goes down in Catholic teaching as a man of faith and determination, exhibited in his missions, endeavors, and even in his death. Saint Peter, even at the point of his death, chose to be crucified upside down because he feels that he does not deserve to be punished in the same way that his Master did.

In the same manner, the parishioners of Saints Peter and John Parish are called to be faithful and brave in the face of difficulties. It is also in the same manner that, men are called to be the builders of Christ’s Church, and the destroyers of the gates of Hades.

Saint John

Saint John is known to Christians as the “Beloved Apostle”, who wrote the fourth canonical gospel, a series of epistles, and the book of Revelation. He is the brother of Saint James the Greater, who at the same time is an apostle of Jesus Christ. Along with Saint Peter, Saints James and John were the only apostles to witness Jesus’ transfiguration, the raising from the dead of Jairus’ daughter, and Jesus’ agony in Gethsemane. Saint John is often attributed to an eagle, because of his high amount of reasoning and philosophy in his writings.

Saint John is also the same apostle on to whom Jesus Christ entrusted her mother at the foot of the cross. In his ministry, he is recognized to be a theologian, as he wrote his New Testament books with lofty thoughts. Having received illumination from the Lord Himself, he is credited for the only apocalyptical writing that the Roman Catholic Church has recognized.

In writing the fourth Gospel, Saint John reveals himself as “apostle whom Christ loves”, having rested his head on the Lord’s chest during the last supper. The real meaning of his writings, because of its grammatical and symbolical supremacy, is still under debate.

Saint John’s feast day falls on December 27.
