St. Joseph Parish in Barangay Tambo, Parañaque City

St. Joseph Parish is located at 223 Quirino Ave. Barangay Tambo, Parañaque City. Barangay Tambo back in the days was a Protestant commune with four different denominations. The Belgian Catholic missionaries of the Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariae (CICM) from the St. Andrew’s Parish of La Huerta helped planted the seeds of Catholicism in Tambo and by 1969, the barangay have its own Catholic parish named after St. Joseph, the Worker and Husband of Mary with Father Leonardo Marquez as its first parish priest.

The church’s façade used to be colored white and I was pleasantly surprised to see it painted in yellow with green, to which according to Manang caretaker is painted in St. Joseph’s colors. You will see that there are banderitas (small flags) since I visited the church, a week after its feast day last May 1. I will be updating this post when I come back for another picture of the church’s façade less the banderitas.
