The present parish of the Most Holy Redeemer, began with a chapel of the Most Holy Trinity Parish in Balic-balic in Sampalic, Manila. On September 20, 1954, the Most Holy Redeemer Parish was established, its territory obtained from the Holy Trinity and Sacred Heart parishes. The parish church was solemnly dedicated on 4 March 1962, by the late Cardinal Rufino J. Santos. The spiritual care of thte parish was entrusted to the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, with Fr. Andrew Cornsten as pastor. The religious fathers adminstered the parish until 1973, when it was handed over to the diocesan clergy. Its first diocesan parish priest was Msgr. Martin Guballa.
A year after, again because of the increasing population and the growing number of Catholics, the parish was divided in two, giving birth to a new parish – the Our Lady of Fatima Parish, located on Cordillera Street in Galas, Quezon City.
