Our Lady of Beautiful Love Parish BY : ANNA PAULINE R. DIMLA 217A-BFA VAD
About my community… A community of disciples and renewed families where everyone particularly the men and the youth, takes role in the parish, all parishioners are united as loving caring, learning and sharing community, socially aware and prayerful.
How it was named as OLBL It was originally named Madre del Amor Hermoso or Mother of Fair Love. The KC Council changed it to Our Lady of Beautiful Love and made it the Council’s name. When Merville was declared a parish two years later, it was decided by Fr. Eusebio and the lay leaders to adopt the same name for the Parish.
Merville was considered part of the St. Andrew Parish of the town of Paranaque but attached to the St. Martin de Porres Parish of the older United Paranaque Subdivision The homeowners decided to build studier and permanent structure that was to serve as their chapel. And then 10 years later, it was finally inaugurated as a church.
