In 1991, a little group of Roman Catholics established the Loved Flock charismatic renewal in the Laura 1 area in Bgy. Old Balara, Quezon City. During this time, the Sons of Charity came to the area and helped organize four chapels in Laura 1 (1991), Laura 2 (1990), Villa 1 (1994), and Villa 2 (1996). The Kaligtasan Chapel was added in 2002.
The Sons of Charity worked with the different communities and began some social projects in 1996 such as “Komisyon ng Kalusugan” and a small scholarship program. These projects were beneficial as the area had many informal settlers and a majority was poor.
Eventually, the population in the area grew to 30,000 as its geographical scope increased. On February 17, 2008, the Jesus of Nazareth Parish was established.
The feast day of the Parish is on the first Saturday of May except when it falls on May 1, in which case the celebration is held on the second Saturday. The Parish is located in Villa Beatriz, Purok I, Area 5, Old Balara, Quezon City. Its current Parish Priest is Rev. Fr. Daniel Godofroy, SG.
