Lady of Peace and Good Voyage Chapel

              

     The first mass in Nova Homes was held on September 10, 1990. It was a street mass celebrated by Rev. Msgr. Felipe Ocol, the Parish Priest of  Our Lady of Mercy Parish. They continued celebrating street masses in Nova Homes until such time that a chapel was built.

The construction of the chapel started in 1995 under the leadership of the late Engr. Leodegario De Leon, President of the Homeowners Association. Our Lady of Peace, a group of women residents of Nova Homes who manages the Family Rosary Crusade of the community, helped to raise funds to finance the construction of the chapel.

Msgr. Ocol was invited to celebrate the holy mass and blessing of the chapel. Eventually a multi-purpose hall was constructed beside the chapel to accommodate the increasing number of churchgoers. Msgr. Ocol organized a sub-pastoral council of officers to take care of the church activities.

 When Immaculate Conception was established as a parish in 1997, the sub-pastoral council overall coordinator Bro. Tanny Conte met with the first Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Aldrin T. Lopez to discuss the  need for a patron saint of the Nova Homes Chapel. A survey among the subdivision residents revealed their preference for Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage as patron saint. They celebrated their first feast day on May 1997 and celebrated it every first Sunday of May thereafter.

The Vigil in honor of the feast of Christ the King was celebrated in the chapel in 1988 during the time of Fr. Aldrin the parish priest of the Immaculate Conception. The vigil was again celebrated in 2001 when Fr. Alan Samonte was already the  Parish Priest of ICP.

Feast Day: Every 1st sunday of May
