HISTORY:

                Originally dedicated to Our Lady Queen of China, Sacred Heart Parish – Jesuit was founded in 1952. A group of zealous Chinese Catholics in Cebu City, Philippines, with the permission of the Archbishop of Cebu, requested Rev. Fr. Paul O’Brien, S.J., then Superior of the Jesuits of the China Mission, for a Jesuit priest to minister to their pastoral needs.

           Fr. Miguel Pardinas, S.J. , a jovial Mexican priest who had been expelled from China by the communists, arrived in Cebu and quickly organized the parish. Following to assist him was Fr. Eugene Lauzon, S.J., a French-Canadian missionary expelled from China. In a short time, Fr. Pardinas organized the Chinese Catholic Association (CCCA) with Mr. Francis Lim as its first president. The community managed to renovate the ground floor of the Convento of Cebu Cathedral and turned it into a chapel where Masses for the Cebuano Chinese were offered.

      Soon, a co-educational school was established at the Mabini-Manalili area, not far from the Cathedral. Fr. Francisco Heras, S.J., also expelled by Communist China, became the first director of Sacred Heart School for Boys (now Sacred Heart School – Ateneo de Cebu).

             Fr. Arthur Baur, S.J., who arrived in 1956, saw a rapidly expanding community. He, together with Fr. Lauzon, bought the lot from Dr. Hildelbrando Jurado at half the prevailing market price. They worked zealously to build the church as donors poured in contributions. The church was completed in record time to celebrate its first Mass on Christmas Eve of 1960. This is the SACRED HEART CHURCH – JESUIT that we see today.

O Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
We, the Chinese-Filipino

Dedicate our persons and communities
To your protection and compassion.

Gather us as the one Christian community
Respecting cultural and social diversity
And celebrating one faith life in the Spirit
With our filial devotion to Mary, our mother.

Inspire us as discerning Ignatian community
Guided by the ideals of St. Ignatius of Loyola
And enriched by the various charisms of our community.

Empower us as an apostolic community
Of Chinese-Filipino and Filipino communities
Sent to contribute towards
the spiritual, social, temporal and cultural
Transformation of the city, region and nation.

Form us into the community
of your Sacred Heart
In love and obedient to the gracious
will of the Father in Heaven..

Amen.
