The Parish of the Most Holy Trinity (also called Santissima Trinidad) is the youngest among the parishes of the Immaculate Conception in Batangas City. Its history doesn’t span centuries – it was established in 2007 – but it has its own charm. The community had a hand in building the church, making it an integral part of the neighborhood. Aside from the church, you’ll also see other beautiful buildings nearby such as the Kapilya ng Santissimo Sakramento, Kapilya ng Liwanag, Kapilya ng mga Santo at mga Banal, and the Gusaling Pulungan ng Parokya.
The parish focuses on what they call “stewardship” wherein their involvement isn’t just with the construction of buildings, but also the pastoral activities they undertake. They are also active in leading the youth toward God through their “Barkadang Santissima Trinidad”.
