The Redemptorists are one of the many Catholic congregations. The first Perpetual Novena was done in Iloilo in the Redemptorist Church in St. Clement in May 1946. The congregation started to explore the country. Father Gerard O’Donnel became the first Rector in Baclaran on 23 June 1948. Father Leo English conducted the first novena in the Baclaran Church. The church had a 300 person capacity yet only 70 people attended. Before the end of 1949, Wednesday became the official day of prayer for the Virgin of Perpetual Help, therefore also making it the novena day for the week. Slowly Filipinos began to flock to the church making it hard to accommodate more people, but with the help of Filipino communities’ donations and thanksgiving letters the church was renovated to help more people.
