Malate Church
MH del Pilar, Malate, Manila


This section of the city dates back to 1588. The titular patroness of the church is Nuestra Senora de los Remedios whose statue was brought from Spain in 1624 by Rev. Juan Guevara, O.S.A. The British landed their troops near these shores in 1762 and used the Church of Malate for protection for the rear-guard in the capture of Manila. This church was greatly damaged by the earthquake of June 3, 1863 and was rebuilt by Rev. Francisco Cuadrado, O.S.A. The parish has been under the successive administration of the Augustinians, the Secular Clergy, the Redemptorists, and the Columbans.


In Memory of the Columban Fathers Patrick Kelly, S.S.C., John Henaghan S.S.C., John Lalor, S.S.C. and Joseph Monaghan, S.S.C. and tens of thousands of Malate parishioners who were victims of the atrocities of the Japanese Imperial forces and American shelling during the Battle for Manila from February 3 to 17, 1945,
This marker was installed pursuant to Board Resosultion No. 2, s.1994 of the National Historical Institute.
