From humble beginnings, the first bisita made of bamboo and nipa in the 1930 has developed into what is at present the San Roque Catholic Church at Alabang. Situated right in the heart of Muntinlupa City, San Roque is a progressive Parish in the midst of development change. From being simply a rustic barrio at the turn of the century, the town Alabang is now a dynamic municipality bustling and teeming with commercial activity. It is seen by many as the emerging “new Makati”, what with its many commercial establishments and imposing presence of new developments spearheaded by the likes of the Ayala Corporation and Filinvest Corporation.

During the late 1960’s move was made by some prominent and respected citizens of Alabang to request His Eminence Rufino Cardinal Santos, D.D., and Archbishop of Manila to make the Barrio of San Roque into a new Parish.

Several years before the establishment of Our Lady of Mercy (1953), the former name of Ina ng Awa, all Catholic religious service attended by prisoners and civilian population were held inside the prison compound.

PARISH PRIEST:

Rev. Fr, Rosello Hernandez

One hundred seventy-five years today after the Medal of the Immaculate Conception was revealed to a Daughter of Charity, the world has known the wonders which the Medal has brought upon the lives of millions, and undoubtedly, has changed the course of Church history. From 1830 to the present time the Medal has become what it was, and is, meant to be: a symbol of silent and dedicated, humble service to God, a badge of sanctity and piety, and a shield of purity.
The Medal was meant to be propagated. This is precisely the wish of Mary in 1830 when she told Sr. Catherine Laboure: “Have a Medal struck according to this model. All those who wear it with faith and confidence will receive abundant graces…”
Over the years the Medal, which was very so known as “Miraculous,” has been an instrument of numerous cures, protection from accident, pestilence, calamities, and dangers.
Wherever Vincentian missionaries and Daughters of Charity go, the Miraculous Medal is also propagated. With the arrival of the first batch of Vincentian missionaries and Daughters of Charity in the Philippines in 1862, the seedbed of the mustard seed – of the Miraculous Medal – was prepared.
Sometime in 1957, a layperson, Jose Chebat, approached Fr. Jesus Ma. Cavanna, then National Director of the Association of the Children of Mary in the Philippines, and suggested that the latter put up the Miraculous Medal Apostolate.
On August 15, 1957, feast day of the Assumption of Mary, Fr. Cavanna presented the draft of the Miraculous Medal Apostolate to the Council who, without the least objection, approved the establishment of the new movement. Thus, the Miraculous Medal Apostolate (MMA) was born. The date is significant, as it signifies that the movement will draw souls to God, through the Medal, thereby to enjoy the heavenly company of Mary in the glory of her assumption to heaven.
The Miraculous Medal Apostolate was formally launched during the Novena to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal at the St. Vincent de Paul Church in November 1957 with Jose Chebat as the first honorary perpetual member in recognition of his pioneering idea of the movement in the Philippines.
Barely six months after assuming the post of CoM Director, Fr. Teodoro Barquin took over as well that of the MMA following the death of Fr. Luis Angulo, C.M. Fr. Barquin had subscribed to the idea of holding a contest as initiated by Fr. Cavanna in promoting the movement which aims: 1) to spread devotion to the Immacualte Mother of God by means of the Miraculous Medal and, 2) to help in the education of Vincentian seminarians for the priesthood.It was a grand plan – a sort of panavision – visualized in 1964: two magnificent buildings, MARIAN CENTER and the NATIONAL SHRINE OF OUR LADY OF THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL would rise in a 5-hectare lot somewhere in Quezon City in the near future; two superb, modern structures in steel and stones proclaiming the glory of God.
But God writes in crooked lines. Phase One of the vision – Marian Center – was realized earlier, not on a five-hectare lot, but on some 400 sq. m. lot beside the 85-year old church of St. Vincent de Paul, also a Shrine of Our Lady, on the busy street of San Marcelino, Manila.
From 1964 to 1978 – 14 long years – Phase Two of the vision never got blurred in the mind of Fr. Barquin. It was temporarily relegated to the background, busy as he was in his numerous duties and functions. But in moments of personal reflection, especially when alone before the image of Mary, his thoughts would relish the vision, praying for the day when it would be realized.
The answer came unexpectedly. Sometime in 1978, a friend introduced him to a matron, Mrs. Estela Posadas, a Marian devotee herself, whose family owned the Posadas Village in Sucat, Muntinlupa. She said that her family decided to donate some 500 sq. m. lot in their subdivision with option to buy more at discounted price.
With the Deed of Donation already signed, Fr. Barquin contracted two prominent professionals: Jose Zaragosa, architect, and Eduardo Santiago, contractor.
And so, it was on July 19, 1979 that the first, red-letter day of the Shrine began.
Under the bright morning sun, hundreds of Marian devotees, promoters, students, seminarians of St. Vincent de Paul Seminary, CoM members, Daughters of Charity, Vincentian priests, guests and notably the donor of the lot Mrs. Estela Posadas trooped to the site to witness the cornerstone-laying ceremony with Fr. Frank Vargas as Master of Ceremony.
After Jaime Cardinal Sin blessed the cornerstone, he signed the Act of Blessing and placed it in a brass cylinder together with other mementos: medals, rosaries, news clippings, copies of the Mary’s Army and the Newsletter and names of donors and promoters who responded to the appeal of Fr. Barquin for the occasion. The cylinder was then lowered by Mrs. Estela Posadas in the ground to the applause of the spectators – there to remain forever in the bosom of the Shrine.
Total cost of the Shrine would amount to several million pesos. The funding of the construction came from different sources: from benefactors and income from the Marian Store (thru donations and affiliation fees).
In retrospect, Fr. Barquin could not help believing that the construction, completion and blessing of the Shrine were truly under the guidance and inspiration of our Blessed Mother. Events bore witness to this. The laying of the cornerstone took place on the 19th of July, a day after the 18th, which in the history of the Miraculous Medal, is significant as it was on the 18th of July 1830 that Mary first appeared to St. Catherine Laboure.
The work on the Shrine went on smoothly and by July 1980 it was completed. Its inauguration and blessing was set two months later, September 7, eve of Mary’s nativity. Moreover, the year 1980 was declared the Marian Year, this being the 150th anniversary of the Miraculous Medal – the very Medal for which the Shrine was built and consecrated to propagate.
On September 7, 1980, close to three thousand Marian devotees and pilgrims, including guests, gathered to witness the Solemn Dedication of the National Shrine. The Vatican sent a telegraphic message, read by the very Rev. Rolando dela Goza, Provincial of the CM. The presiding prelates, their Eminences Jaime Cardinal Sin of Manila and Julio Cardinal Rosales of Cebu, were preceded by two bishops, some thirty priests (Vincentian and priests from other congregations) as co-celebrants.
A special book containing the names of donors, sponsors, benefactors and promoters of the MMA was blessed by Cardinal Sin, assisted by Fr. Barquin, was placed in a niche at the foot of the statue of Mary, there to be prayed to over and over. The soft smile of Mary seems to give an assurance that all those who have laboured unselfishly for the realization of her home and all those who would come to visit her will have her guidance and protection.
What is the significance of the Shrine? What can a shrine mean to the man of today? Is it worth the millions spent in its construction?
Bishop Teotimo Pacis said, “The Shrine is a home for everyone: the poor and the rich; the lowly and the mighty; the believers and unbelievers; the sinners and the saintly. A home where the Mother of God prays for mankind. Surmounting the shrine is a tall and towering cross, so tall that the world may know that the salvation of the world is Christ, but through Mary. The Shrine beckons us to come to Christ through the loving arms of His mother – Mary, whose medal we wear as symbol of our faith, hope and love.”
He also declared, “It is true Fr. Barquin is not the founder of the Children of Mary Immaculate. But if the association is what it is today, with its national council and diocesan councils all over the Philippines, we owe it to Fr. Barquin.
“It is true he is not the founder of Mary’s Army. But if Mary’s Army is what it is today as a National Marian magazine, we owe it to Fr. Barquin.
“It is true he is not the founder of the Miraculous Medal Apostolate. But if the MMA is what it is today, modernized and streamlined, we owe it to the managerial expertise of Fr. Barquin.

In the eleventh and twelfth centuries we find the first indications of devotion to the Sacred Heart. It was the Benedictine or Cistercian monasteries, in the world of Anselmian or Bernardine that the devotion began. On 31 August 1670 the first feast of Sacred Heart was celebrated in the Grand Seminary of Rennes. Coutances followed suit on 20 October. The feast soon spread to othr dioceses and the devotion was adopted in various religious communities.

St. Peregrine Laziosi Parish is one of the eleven parishes of the Vicariate of Our Lady of the Abandoned, Muntinlupa City. Before it became a formal parish on February 10,1985, it was part of the Our Lady of the Abandoned Parish ( Nuestra Señora delos Desamparados). Upon the arrival of the Order of the Servants of Mary in the Philippines, His Eminence the late Jaime Cardinal Sin created St. Peregrine a new parish. Fr. Tarcisio Roffi, OSM was installed as the Parish Priest then, although there was no parish church yet to gather the parishioners for the Eucharistic celebration. Since 1985, until now, St. Peregrine Laziosi Parish is under the pastoral care of the Order of the Servants of Mary, wherein Rev. Fr. Deogracias Ma. Alejandria, OSM is the installed Parish Priest. He is assisted Rev. Fr. Rolly Ma. Daquigan, OSM, Rev. Fr. Marciano Ma. Doloroso, OSM and by the community of the Servants of Mary: friars and seminarians. St. Peregrine is the chosen name and patron saint for 2 reasons: His Eminence recommended it to be the name of the Parish, That St. Peregrine is a famous saint as the protector of Cancer patients and this can be a great benefit and blessing to all the parishioners and to all the Filipinos suffering from the dreaded disease.

The Parish, which occupies a greater land area of Tunasan, is the end boundary of the City of Muntinlupa in going to the South. It has 7 subdivisions and 9 poor urban areas and 1 barrio proper. The Parish is bounded by Laguna de bay in the East, South Expressway in the west, Planas Compound and JPA Subdivision in the north and Municipality of San Pedro in the south. For several years, the Parish had no church to gather its parishioners for the celebration of the mass. After 12 long years, mass had been celebrated in 7 subdivisions and in different puroks of the Parish every Sunday. Through solicitations, donations and several fund-raising drives, the most cherished dream of the Order of the Servants of Mary and the parishioners was realized when on October 31, 1998, a beautiful shrine was inaugurated by His Eminence Jaime Cardinal Sin.

Muntinlupa, according to a Spanish document dated 1818 but published in Spain, in 1850, was a "pueblo" belonging to the Province of Tondo and became part of parish of St. Anne when Taguig, Tondo in 1587 was established. later when Calamba of the Province of Laguna was erected in 1632 it apparently became, according to some vague oral tradition of the old people, part of Calamba Parish. but in 1724 when San Pedro de Tunasan of Laguna Province was established as a Parish, Muntinlupa which inducted the area of Cupang, Sucat and Alabang was made part of this Parish, yet civil documents showed that it remained a "pueblo" of Tondo Province. thus in 1818 when a chart was drawn up showing the pueblos of Tondo Province, Muntinlupa, considered a"Pueblo de la Provincia de Tondo" was listed as a Parish with Fr. Epifanio Marcelo as Parish Priest who was listed also as Parish Priest of San Pedro in Laguna Province. apparently, accordng to a Spanish. hence, Fr. Marcelo was Parish Priest both of Muntinlupa and San Pedro de Tunasan.
on February 14, 1863 the then Archbishop of Manila, Most Rev. Gregorio Meliton Martinez, a Diocesan or Secular Priest, (Archbishop of Manila 1862-1875) issued a "Decreto Superior" creating a new Parish in "el pueblo de Muntinlupa" a place developed and big enough to serve as a center, effectively separating it from its "Matriz" (Mother Parish), San Pedro "dela provincia de Laguna".
the date on the Spanish documents salling Muntinlupa "pueblo" showed that "it was already considered one of the towns of the province of Tondo. when the Americans came, an oversight formally proclaimed the "pueblo de Muntinlupa" a town in 1917. civilly it was cared out from the territories of Taguig.
on April 3, 1863, Fr. Mariano Umali was designated as Interim (Acting) Parish Priest. after him, came Fr. Jose Dionosio de Mendoza. According to the older folks of the parish, the Church was originally facing the lake, Laguna de Bay.
from 1863 to 1920, the Parish Church was located along the Ampao St. at the junction of Calle Nueva, it was built of light materials. in 1920, Fr. Chardon, Parish Priest, transferred the Church to the present site.
during the 1940's the image of Sto. Niño was being borrowed regularly by a group o women for their special devotion (usually on early morning dawn procession) until it got kept in a small chapel which stood right at the spot where thr present Sto. Niño was the object of a special devotion.
when the National Road was constructed during the time of Fr. Rosalino Veneracion, the so called "Hoodlum Priest" the front of the church was made to face the new highway to the south. after him, Fr. Antonio Espeleta, Fr. Alex B. Yap, and Msgr. Dalmacio G. Eusebio, Jr. tried to improve the facade. after a reaserch on Architectural design during the Spanish period, that then parish priest Msgr. Roberto A. Spenila together wih Reynaldo Uy, an Architect, drew a design of facade of the Spanish Vintage.
from 1994 to 1995, the church facade was built and the interior was renovated. this led to the dedication of the church solemnized by His Eminence Jaime Cardinal L. Sin on May 20, 1995 on May 31, 1997 Feast of Mary's visitation, the faithful gathered around the Local Ordinary and pastor. His Eminence Jaime Cardinal L.
