  • 1. 2126 Singalong St. corner San Andres St., Malate, Manila By: Mary Lyn S. Dioso 217A BFA-VDC
  • 2. •At the turn of the century, Singalong had become crowded with peopleexpelled from the other areas of Manila or coming from the provinces.•They lived in simple houses constructed with nipa or wood. There was a“visita” dedicated to St. Anthony of Padua in the area. Since 1901, Fr.Francisco of Santibanez and other Capuchins visited there on Sundays tocelebrate mass, visit the sick and teach Christian doctrine to children.•In 1905 Archbishop Michael J. O’Doherty, realizing the need of the peopleand recognizing the good work of the Capuchins, built a simple convent andin October, asked the capuchins to live there permanently and take care of thepeople.•This was willingly accepted. On November 25, 1905, Fr. Mariano ofOlot, as president and parish priest, moved there together with Fr. Vicente ofPamplona and bro. Gabriel of Lizarza.•On Dec. 10, 1905, they celebrated their first baptism and the parish of St.Anthony was subsequently erected in an official manner on April 2, 1906.•Two months later, Fr. Vicente of Pamplona took over and during is threeyears as parish priest, he was able to build a real church to replace the old“visita”. The new church was made of concrete with galvanized iron roofingand a massive façade and belfry resembling the rural churches of Mexico andSpain. During his second term as parish priest of Singalong (1915-1921)
  • 3. •Fr. Blas de Guernica extended the church, making the interior higher thanthe main nave in order to consolidate the sanctuary with the main altar andthe sacristy. In his return, Fr. Felix of Iguzquiza (1926-1930) worked hard inbeautifying the surroundings. Although he had plans to build a largerchurch for the growing population, it was his successor Fr. Florencio ofLezaun (1930-1939) who successfully carried the burden of building thebig church with a seating capacity of two thousand. It also had abeautifully grand façade and a beltower. Together with the church, a newconvent was also built•. During this time, on June 1, 1936, the Singalong School opened underthe title of Immaculate Conception Institute starting with a kindergartenfollowed by primary and intermediate level. This school was recognizedby the government. The fees were also almost purely nominal. The sistersof St. Paul of Chartres assisted the fathers in running the school. It wasfounded by Sr. Suzanne, SPC, Sr. Salvacion, SPC, Fr. Florencio deLasaun, OFMCap., and Mrs. Maria Gutierrez.•During the Japanese war, the building were damaged. Worse yet, theJapanese, tortured and killed the three priest working in Singalong: Fr.Raymundo of Labiano, Parish Priest (1939-1945), and his assistance Fr.Santiago of Ibiricu and Fr. Pacificio of Villatuerta. All this happened onFeb. 6-7, 1945. It was then the work of Fr. Jacinto of Arandigoyen (1945-1954) to repair the damages to the spirit of the people. The school wasturned over to the Capuchin fathers in 1956 to mark its expansion thoughthe Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres continued to assisted in theadministration. Finally, the present magnificent church in Honor of St.Anthony was built under Fr. Julio of Narcue, Parish Priest from 1965-1970. This church was blessed on December 10, 1967.
  • 4. •Meanwhile, the school kept growing in different stages: in 1959, Fr.Adolfo of Echavarri built a three storey building and opened a highschool department. In 1963, during the administration of Fr. Ramon ofNavaz, another four storey building was raised. This maybe seen as theportion running from the central stairway abutting the building of 1959.•In 1967, under Fr. Julio’s administration, the imposing central and theentire east-wing behind the church where added. In the 70’s when Fr.Manuel Ramirez was parish priest, six lot were acquired in view of futureexpansion. The parish center was also built in 1972. The expansionfinally happen in 1980, during Fr. Luis Arrieta’s administration; a newbuilding was raise with an auditorium and rooms for vocational courses.•The St. Anthony community Center and the multi- purpose center inDagonoy established in 1974•In July 16, 1990, a strong earthquake damaged the church bell tower andthe concrete cross, including its foundation. Through the initiative of theparish priest, Fr. Alfred Micua, a fund raising was launched for thereconstruction of the bell tower and the cross. The new bell tower wasfinished just in the time for the “Simbang Gabi” and it was on December16, 1990, at three o’clock early morning that the bell tower was heard bythe Singalong parishioners and it sounded the start of the Yuletide season.With the thrust of the Catholic Church to promote lay collaboration, inline with the goals and objectives of the August 1996 Second ProvincialCouncil of Manila (PCM II), the parish now aims to encourage a moreactive participation of lay men and women in the activities of the church.The parish have active roles in various organizations in the Archdioceseof Manila. With the continued support and patronage of St. Anthony ofPadua and our Blessed Mother of the Immaculate Conception, the parishhopes to continue its growth in the service of the Kingdom of God
