The History of Sto Rosario Parish Church

From a little distance, the church of Sto. Rosario is a beautiful work of art. But more than beauty, it is a masterpiece of people who carved it out from the barren ground from where it slowly took shape and rose quietly like an exquisite flower now in bloom.

There was no church - not even a small chapel - to speak of in Pacita Complex before the onset of the 80's. In fact, early residents who have just began trooping to the new housing complex the last three years, attend Sunday masses either in San Pedro or in Binan.

But on November 15, 1980, death anniversary of the late father of Virginia Calingao, a street mass was held for that solemn occasion. That inconspicuous event was to signal the holding of regular Sunday masses in an open space shaded only by a tent made out of parachute material.
