Quezon City

Quezon City (UK: , US: ; Tagalog: Lungsod Quezon [luŋˈsod ˈkɛson]; Spanish: Ciudad Quezón [sjuˈðað keˈson] (listen); also known as QC or Kyusi) is the most populous and a highly urbanized city in the Philippines. It was founded by and named after Manuel L. Quezon, the 2nd President of the Philippines, to eventually replace Manila as the national capital. The city was proclaimed as such in 1948. However, since practically all government buildings are still in Manila, many functions of national government remained there. Quezon City held the status as the official capital until 1976 when a presidential decree was issued to designate Manila as the capital and Metro Manila as the seat of government.It is the largest city in terms of population and land area in Metro Manila, the National Capital Region of the Philippines. Quezon City is not located in and should not be confused with Quezon Province, which was also named after the president.

Quezon City now hosts a number of government offices, the most important of which are the Batasang Pambansa Complex (the seat of the House of Representatives, the lower chamber of the Philippine Congress), and the Quezon City Reception House (the current seat of the Vice President of the Philippines). Quezon City also serves as home to the University of the Philippines Diliman—the national university—and Ateneo de Manila University.

The Quezon Memorial Circle is a national park and shrine located in Quezon City. The park is an ellipse bounded by the Elliptical Road. Its main feature is a mausoleum containing the remains of President Quezon and his wife, First Lady Aurora Quezon.

It was canonically erected on August 28, 2003, with the installation of Most Rev. Honesto Flores Ongtioco as the first Bishop of Cubao.

Sacred Heart Parish Kamuning

The Sacred Heart Parish Shrine - Kamuning is a Catholic parish in the Kamuning District of Quezon City in the Philippines. It was established on October 3, 1941, making it the first parish in Quezon City. The parish has been in the pastoral care and administration of the Society of the Divine Word since even before its founding. Kamuning was a government housing project of then Philippine Commonwealth President Manuel Luis Quezon. Kamuning was known then as Barrio Obrero II.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish parish center is located at the intersection of Scout Ybardolaza Street, Scout Fuentebella Street and Scout Fernandez Street. The parish is part of the Diocese of Cubao[1].

The parish celebrates its annual fiesta on the movable feast Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart according to the liturgical calendar of the Catholic Church, the Friday right after the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, also known as Corpus Christi.

Formerly known as Barrio Obrero II, was a housing project site for government employees and their families. Late in 1939, the Kamuning Residents' Association sought pastoral care from the Society of the Divine World (SVD). The First Mass was celebrated where the Kamuning Public Market now stands, on that year's Christmas Eve. In the early 1940s, the parish boundaries reached as far east toward Loyola Heights and westward up to the Mabuhay Rotonda. About a year later, on October 1, 1941, the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish was established, and it has been in the care of the SVD missionaries since then. Today, the parish covers five barangays – Kamuning, Sacred Heart, South Triangle, Kristong Hari, Kalusugan, and part of Obrero. According to Philippines 2000 Census, the parish jurisdiction has a resident population of 43,074 people.

The Society of the Divine Word (SVD) was founded on September 8, 1875 by St. Arnold Janssen in Steyl, Netherlands. The SVD is one of the largest Ad Gentes Catholic religious male congregations in the world with over 6,000 members (priests and brothers) worldwide. The current Superior-General of the SVD is Rev. Fr. Paulus Budi Klenden. The Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish-Shrine is in the SVD Philippine Central Province, which is headed by a Provincial Superior. The current Provincial Superior of SVD PHC is Rev. Fr. Jerome Marquez, SVD who is also former parish priest and first rector of the Shrine.

A recent significant development in the history of the parish is the canonical dedication of the Shrine of the Divine Word, which is the chapel in the Christ the King Mission Seminary located along E. Rodriguez Sr. Avenue. The chapel became the Shrine on December 25, 2006 and Bishop Honesto F. Ongtioco of the Diocese of Cubao presided over the dedication rites. The Christ the King Mission Seminary is of the Society of the Divine Word and was established in 1933.
