Built on 1968, Saint Alphonsus Mary de’ Liguori Parish was designed by Architect Leandro Locsin, a national artist. The then Archbishop of Manila, His Eminence Rufino Cardinal Santos approved the naming of Saint Alphonsus Mary de Liguori as titular or patron saint, to honor Don Alfonso Zobel, who donated the land for the church.
In September 2004, a faulty wiring caused fire that consumed the church and brought it down to ruins. The Bahay Kubo at the back lot of the rectory became the alternate place of worship. In the year following the incident, a fundraising committee and a special events group organized various activities for the rebuilding of the church. On August 1, 2007 in time for the feast day of Saint Alphonsus, the new church was completed.
Currently, Msgr. Claro Matt M. Garcia serves as the parish priest of St. Alphonsus Mary de Liguori Parish. He was installed on July 1, 2015.
