How did the parish start?

In 1930, Arthur Ralston Sr. and his young wife from Cebu, Aurelia Cabatuan, built the San Antonio Chapel, since they believed that their extraordinary fortune came through the intercession of St. Anthony de Padua. The community earlier named Bodega became known as San

Antonio. On October 12, 1970, Mary and Arthur Jr., the Ralston children, took the chapel under their care. In September 1981, Jaime Cardinal L. Sin suggested that a parish church be built in San Antonio. Fr. Milanio Raymundo celebrated his first masses at the San Antonio

Chapel on Sto. Nino Street. Later on, mass was celebrated in a garage on Montenegro Street, then at the Dona Loleng Hall in the Lingao compound. The search for a permanent church site ended when Dona Dolores Sanpedro-Lingao convinced he husband, Atty. Dionisio

Lingao, to donate to the parish their property at West Riverside cor. Lincoln St.

What does the parish need?

The sounds from the speakers are not clear enough for the Word of God to be COMPLETELY understood by the Church. The most important things when you go to Mass are the messages of the priest and if you cant understand these messages

What is the point of even going to church!?

Reflection (Alec Bukuhan)

I didnt really have a relationship with the parish before the project. The family and I dont go to mass here. We just have mass here because of the project. My relationship with the parish strengthens every time I go there.

Reflection (Raf Florendo)

Honestly, I have NEVER been to this church before, but because of this Parish Alive project, I was required to go there. As we progressed in our project, I became closer to this Parish every time I went there. And as I became closer to this parish, I also became

closer to God and my faith in Him was strengthened.
