Established on April 2, 1997, the Ina Ng Laging Saklolo Parish is located in Phase 7, Bagong Silang, Calocan City. It was first a sub-chapel area of the Santo Nino Parish, Bagong Silang, Caloocan City, run by the Congregation of the Passion of Jesus Christ (CP) under the title of Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel. Later, it became a sub-chapel of San Jose Amang Mapagkalinga Parish, Phase 5, Bagong Silang under the Missionary of the St. Francis Sales.
The residents of Phase 7, Bagong Silang petitioned the Archdiocese of Manila to make their sub-chapel a parish. Before December 1996, the petition was approved for its Chaplaincy.
The following year, on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, Rev. Fr. Hamilton B. Ureta arrived as the Chaplain. He received his appointment for Parish Priest on April 1, 1997. The Chaplaincy was elevated next day as a Parish under the patronage of Ina ng Laging Saklolo.
On October 5, 1997, the community broke ground for the construction of a new church. The groundbreaking was presided by the late Jaime Cardinal Sin in the presence of parish benefactors such as the late Dona Aurora Paraiso-Tambunting and her son Ramon Tambunting. Construction began in May 1998 and the new church was completed five months later.
The Parish Church and its Altar were dedicated and consecrated on October 30, 1998 by then Manila Auxiliary Bishop Crisostomo Yalung and Bishop Antonio Bastes on behalf of Jaime Cardinal Sin.
On April 16, 2000, the Parish celebrated its appointment as the Jubilee Church for the Urban Poor for the Great Jubilee Year 2000 in a Mass presided by Cardinal Sin. Rev. Fr. Hamilton B. Ureta was then the Parish Priest. He was succeeded by Rev. Fr. Jaime Z. Lara in 2001, Rev. Fr. Leonides T. Laguilles in 2007, and Rev. Fr. Joseph M. Buslon in 2008.
The Parish currently has one Chapel in Phase 12, Bagong Silang and 13 areas known as Packages. It now has a multi-purpose hall, wellness center, Parish store, Big Kubo for meetings and formations, and the convent for the priest.
Rev. Fr. Tristan Jasper D. Laforteza became the Parish Administrator when Fr. Joseph was transferred to Jesus, Lord of Divine Mercy Parish, Mapayapa Village, Q.C. on January 21, 2013. The feast day of the Parish is on January 27.
