The late patriarch of the Dizon Family and Chairman of Magnificat Ventures Corporation, Mr. Rafael “Boy” Dizon, Jr., and his wife, Mrs. Rosaline “Shalene” Dizon are devout Catholics who both nurtured a dream to build an impressive shrine as a gift to the Church that helped them grow in faith and love.
For many years, Boy’s physical health suffered and Shalene remained faithful by his side. Throughout countless trials and obstacles, their commitment to this dream never wavered. They continued to help many people and even assisted in the construction of numerous churches in the Philippines despite Boy’s ailments. Their steadfast love and devotion to the Lord inspired their whole family to share their desire to see the dream fulfilled.
Through a series of fortuitous events and certainly with Divine blessing and intervention, the Dizons crossed paths with then Bishop of the Military Ordinariate of the Philippines (MOP), Most Rev. Ramon C. Arguelles, D.D. who wished to build a bigger church in honor of his beloved Patron Saint, St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus, in Villamor, Pasay City.
