THE YOUNGEST MEMBER of the Our Lady of Grace Vicariate, San Jose Parish was only erected in the year 1989, from the small chapel in the Barrio of San Jose, situated along Cabanatuan Street. The humble chapel was instituted out of a strong drive from the community in having a place to pray. Several people, some of them are Quintoy Domingo, Faustino Castaneda, Tino Rivera, Romulo Arquiza and Tomas Calasan weaved the chapel’s internal plan.
As the parishioners continued to strive for improvements, the chapel was placed under the care of Saint Pancratius’ care, and later on, Sagrada Familia’s. It was also through the parish priest of Saint Pancratius Parish, Rev. Fr. Melencio de Vera, that the chapel was blessed.
After several years, the Chapel was canonically instituted as a parish with Rev. Fr. Arsenio Nalunat as the first parish priest. Then, as Rev. Fr. Jesus Jose C. Bustillo assumed the post from Fr. Nalunat, he organized the Neo Catecumenado which strengthened the communal ties between each person in giving praise to God.
Through time, San Jose Agudo Parish has been challenged, but through the leadership of their current parish priest, Rev. Fr. Ruben Maybuena, and also through the will of the parishioners, San Jose Agudo has passed through the endeavors, and promises to do the same later on.
SAINT JOSEPH, THE MAN BETROTHED TO MARY THE MOTHER OF JESUS CHRIST, was chosen to be the human stepfather of Jesus in fulfillment of the scriptures, which says that the Messiah would come from the line of King David.
But though Joseph’s genealogy traces to King David, he had no evidences of royalty on him. He was a humble carpenter, living a simple life of principles and morals. In fact, when Joseph died, he had nothing to give Jesus but his ideals, and his title and his skills as a carpenter, or tektos in Greek, of Nazareth.
But more than his job, Joseph is well admired because of his courage and faith to the will of God. At the moment he learned about the pregnancy of Mary, he decided to silently end their engagement, which God has not intended. As the angel of God appeared to Joseph, he immediately followed its orders, taking care of Mary as she took the pains of childbearing, and afterwards loving Jesus as his real own son.
Saint Joseph is regarded as the patron saint of workers, and as the protector of the Church.
