Initially a makeshift altar turned Chapel of the Nativity upon the initiative of the employees of the DBP Housing area led by Mr. and Mrs. Delfin Palacios. Later administered by Msgr. Alfredo Reyes, Parish Priest of Philam Sta. Rita and assisted by guest priests, notably the Reverend Fathers Ben Villote, Israel Nacu, Dick Freiss and Dave Viehland.
Zealously serviced by the members of the Catholic Women’s League, sub-chapter of Sta. Rita Parish.
This Chapel of the Nativity was instituted into a new Parish renamed “Parish of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary”, by His Eminence Jaime Cardinal L. Sin on February 27, 1988 and installed Rev. Fr. Rio G. Evangelista as its first parish priest.
Through the persistent efforts of Barangay Captain Atty. Arturo De Leon and then Fr. Dave Viehland, the Quezon City government through Mayor Brigido Simon awarded the contract of lease of the church site to the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Manila in June 5, 1988.
On May 3, 1992, during the Pontificate of Pope John Paul II, and the incumbency of President Corazon C. Aquino, the beautiful church was formally consecrated and dedicated by His Eminence Jaime Cardinal L. Sin., DD Archbishop of Manila.
Architect Noli Bernardo is the architect of the church and its first parish council president.

Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary I consecrate my entire self to the Most Holy Love of Your Two Hearts. I wish to make reparation for all the sins of the world including my own. I offer these things for the love of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
I will keep my mind on beauty and turn my thoughts from evil things. I will hold my temper and bear the mistakes of others with love and a forgiving heart. I will admit when I am wrong and ask others to forgive me. I will not show off but remain humble. I will offer up all my sufferings, sickness and hurts. I will seek God’s will not my own. I will show appreciation for all the kindness, the blessings that I receive, and thank God for all things. 1 will do everything in my life for love of God. And I will love others as God has loved me.
0 Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, receive the offering and consecration I now make of my self to You. Keep me faithful unto death. Bring me one day to the happy home in heaven. I desire to live forever with God the Father and the Most Holy Spirit and You my Jesus together with your Most Immaculate Mother Amen.
