The story of St. Andrew the Apostle Parish begins in 1965 when a group of residents belonging to the villages of San Miguel and Bel-Air dreamt to have a parish that they could call their own.
The community did not have to wait long. Don Andres Soriano Jr. offered to have a church built in honor of his late father Don Andres Sr. who was loved and respected by the people of San Miguel Corporation. Thus, the parish was named after the patriarch’s namesake, St. Andrew the Apostle.
With the approval of the establishment and formation of the parish by His Eminence Rufino Cardinal Santos came the appointment of Fr. Emilio Bularan as the first Parish Priest.
On February 8, 1967, the 69th birthday of the late Don Andres Soriano, the cornerstone was laid at the 3,494 square meter lot donated by the Ayala family through the Makati Development Corporation.
November 30, 1968 marked the birth of St. Andrew the Apostle Parish. At half past eight in the morning, the community gathered to witness the unveiling of the church marker by the people whose generosity made the occasion possible: Andres Soriano Jr., President of San Miguel Corporation; Jose Ma. Soriano, Chairman and President of A. Soriano y Cia; Enrique Zobel, President of the Ayala Corporation; and other donors from Roxas y Cia.
The dream has been fulfilled. New dreams were about to be born.
