Mount Carmel


Situated in Aurora Boulevard in New Manila, Quezon City, Mount Carmel is another church favored for weddings. With its large, ornate array of stained glass windows, the church is romantic as it is serene.


Just a short history of the church, On Dec. 30, 1954, the cornerstone for the church was blessed by Archbishop Vagnozzi in the presence of Archbishop Rufino Santos of the Archdiocese of Manila, Most Reverend Marie-Eugene, vicar general of the Order of the Discalced Carmelites and Ms Mila Magsaysay, representing her father President Ramon Magsaysay. This cornerstone is located just below the main altar.

Ten years after the laying of the cornerstone, Rufino Cardinal Santos, archbishop of Manila, formally consecrated the shrine to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. A few years later, the shrine was separated from the Immaculate Concepcion Parish, with Fr. Paul Sullivan being installed as its first parish priest. Another pioneer in the development of the parish is Fr. Tom Shanahan who was involved in the work on the shrine community center.
