Welcome to the official website of the Our Lady of Beautiful Love (OLBL) Parish. Located at 80 Washington Merville Subdivision Parañaque, our parish is part of the Vicariate of San Martin de Porres, under the Diocese of Parañaque. The past years have been full of great blessings for our parish. From a chapel in an empty lot in Longbeach and Rivera streets, way back in 1965, our parish has grown over the years into a more complex parish church that address the needs of its parishioners. Not only has the parish grown in its physical structure, but more importantly, the past years have seen the emergence in the number of dedicated members among the parishioners.
The parish was established on April 20, 1969. The parish was put under the patronage of Our Lady of Beautiful Love, the name of the parish was from the name of the Knights of Columbus Council. The feast of the Patroness was agreed to be celebrated on May 12. The parish celebrates its feast on the nearest Sunday.
Today, the Our Lady of Beautiful Love Parish belongs to the Diocese of Parañaque established in December 7, 2002 with The Most Reverend Jesse E. Mercado as the bishop of the diocese.
