Architect José María V. Zaragoza - National Artist
St. John Bosco Parish proudly honors the late Architect José María V. Zaragoza , the new National Artist for Architecture, Design and Allied Arts , who designed the St. John Bosco Parish church, more than 35 years ago. Architect Zaragoza is credited for elevating the country’s architectural tradition with other iconic landmarks here and abroad, which include the Sto. Domingo Church in Quezon City, the National Shrine of the Miraculous Medal in Sucat, the Meralco Building and the Greenhills Shopping Center in Ortigas and the spacious re-designed interiors of Quiapo church. But beyond raising monuments of steel and concrete, this SJB Makati parishioner and daily Massgoer, together with his wife, Pilar, raised an exemplary family: accomplished, loving and God-fearing.

FIRST SJB PARISH ASSEMBLY
12 June 2014
Members of SJB Parish Organizations spent their Philippine Independence Day Holiday in the first Parish Assembly.
Main speaker, Fr. Renato De Guzman, SJB Parish Priest, made a presentation on the first Christian Community and how the relationships and organization of its members became the models of present-day Parish ministries.
Among the topics are: the Good Shepherd style of Parish Ministry and the 5 C's of Pastoring the Parish Community

The Don Bosco Youth Center (DBYC), an invaluable fixture of hundreds of Salesian settings all over the world, is modeled after Don Bosco's Oratory:
The Oratory is a place, an attitude and a method. The Salesian approach to youth ministry is first and foremost a way to Jesus.
Through the years, SJB Parish Makati's DBYC has been the seedbed for creative, committed Parish youth leaders, the future movers, leaders and exemplary citizens of society.
