History

The Krus na Ligas Parish has a share in Philippine Revolution, since the place where the church stands today used to be the camp of the Katipuneros led by Adres Bonifacio. It is said that the place also served as shelter for Filipino guerillas in World War II.

For a long time, the church community stayed under the care of the Franciscan missionaries, being one of the congregation’s mission areas. In 1997, the parish was formally established, and was handed over to the care of the diocesan clergy, with Fr. Arthur Opiniano as its first parish priest.

B. Parish Youth Ministry

The Holy Cross Parish Youth Ministry (HCPYM) is the specific “branch” of the parish pastoral service which directed to the formation of the youth of the community. HCPYM indeed flows from the recognition of the community of the need to give attention to the young as well as actively involving them in the parish life. Its main goal is to help the youth grow in their personal relationship with God.
