The Church of Mandaluyong:
About the Church: In October 30,1863 the Parish was erected Canonically with Reverend Father Francisco Gimenez as Parish Priest. In 1870, Father Gavino Ruiz, the incumbent Parish Priest was authorized to purchase a new Church site from the Augustinian Fathers for 475 Pesos con 35 Centimos. The corner stone of the Church was blessed on March 25,1870.
My Thoughts About the Church: Having been a long time resident of Mandaluyong i found it odd that i do not know anything about the Oldest Church of the City. All I knew was that it was the oldest but as to how old?? Searching the internet about the Church turned negative so we decided to pay the Church Office a Visit and thanks to Ms. Marlyn Bernardo for giving us a Brief History of the Parish.
The Church is a Beautiful stone Church dedicated to San Felipe Neri. It has the unique distinction of being the only Church in the Philippines with San Felipe Neri as its Patron.
