THE SANTISIMO Rosario Parish celebrated its 70th founding anniversary last Oct.7, highlighting the “Year of Faith” of the Catholic Church proclaimed by Pope Benedict XVI.

“This is really history for the parish for reaching the 70th year of serving people, preaching the word of God and administering sacraments,” said Parish Priest Fr. Franklin Beltran, O.P.

“People must strengthen their confidence, especially about their faith. Faith is a grace from God,” he added.

Aside from the parishioners, the Thomasian community has also considered Santisimo Rosario as a center of physical and spiritual formation through its administration of sacraments to the students, faculty members and administrators.

The parish fiesta ended with a grand procession of the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of the Rosary.

The Santisimo Rosario Church, which was originally only a chapel of UST, was declared a parish church by then Manila Archbishop Michael O’Doherty on March 21, 1942. The parish was home to the image of Our Lady of the Rosary of La Naval from 1942 to 1954 before it was transferred to its permanent home in Sto. Domingo Church in Quezon City on Oct. 10, 1954.
