The parish of San Antonio de Padua emerged from an accomplished mission by a community in Kalumpang, Marikina City to build a chapel where they could come together for worship, liturgical services and other religious activities.
In 1992 the residents organized and appointed an independent committee to take charge of finding a lot for their proposed chapel and the means for its construction. By 1996, the residents were on the way of realizing their dream with the donation by Noah's Paper Mills of a parcel of land on which to build the chapel. The deed of donation was turned over to the Diocese of Antipolo and the cornerstone of the envisioned St. Anthony de Padua Chapel was laid on April 19, 1996.
By January 1998, with the completion of the chapel, a brick, glass, and concrete structure that sits on a hill overlooking the Marikina River, the quasi parish of San Antonio de Padua was recognized.
Finally, on October 18, 2002 - a decade after the faithful had made the first move to build their chapel - the Quasi-Parish was established as the full-pledged Parish of San Antonio de Padua.
