DID YOU KNOW? | Birth of Dela Paz

May 5, 2024

Did you know that the birth of Dela Paz can be traced to the existence of a vast farmland and railway known as Daang Bakal (Riles) that once covered the area?
As years went by, the trains no longer passed the area, the railroads gradually became dilapidated and people started building their houses.
Eventually, traces of the railway could no longer be found, and the Daang Bakal became a major road in the Barangay. With the influx of migrants along the Daang Bakal and the birth of subdivision in the area, Dela Paz became thickly populated and soon separated from Santolan and Manggahan.
In 1968, it became a barangay through the petition of its residents and with the approval of the Municipal Council of Pasig and the Provincial Board of Rizal.
Barangay Dela Paz logo shows the image of its main patron, Nuestra Senora Dela Paz (Our Lady of Peace) which was the Patron of the Diocese of Antipolo.
On January 24, 1983, during his Angelus message, Pope John Paul ll announced the creation of the Diocese of Antipolo, which would encompass the whole province of Rizal, the entire Marikina, and part of Pasig (Barangays Dela Paz, Santolan, Manggahan, Rosario and Sta. Lucia that altogether formed the Vicariate of Sto. Tomas de Villanueva, now belonging to the Diocese of Pasig).
Maligayang Araw ng Barangay Dela Paz!
Culture is Cool in Pasig!
