I can still remember how this shrine was built, it took almost three years for this shrine to finish with an initial budget of Php 150,000 only. It was just a small chapel located at Olympia Village and Fr. Felix P. Pasquin was the assigned chaplain. Fr. Felix P. Pasquin is so kind to the people of Alijis, he is so close to our family because my late grandmother is a devotee and a member of the church’s organization.

The church was constructed using the people’s resources. Engineer Mario S. Macainan and his brother, Fr. Marcito S. Macainan, MSC, donated the 5,396 square-meter lot; Architect Ramiro L. Garcia, Jr., volunteered for the design of the church, and several donations were gathered and as far as i know some donations were from former President Joseph Estrada who personally attended the inauguration of the church. The church has a high ceiling painted with murals as that of seen in the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel.
