History

During the high mass of Sunday, October 10, 1920 at the church of St. Ignatius, the Adoracion Nocturna Filipina was established. They called themselves Turno No. 1 with eighty (80) members, Fr. Victoriano Pascual was the chaplain of the group. Bro. Francisco Munoz de Perez was appointed as the first Jefe de Turno. Don Emilio Ma. Moreta was named the Founder of the organization, later on five of his sons became Jesuit priests while the two daughters became nuns.

The Philippines at that time was passed from the hands of one colonizer, Spain, to the hands of another, America. Pastors of different protestant denominations came serving the American soldiers and at the same time introducing their kind of faith to the Filipinos. Many of the faithful were getting confused. The credibility of the clergy suffered as a result of the anti-Spanish propaganda launched during the revolution. Some Catholic priests broke ties with the Vatican and established an Aglipayan Church.   Rev. Fr. Victoriano Pascual, SJ and Don Emilio agreed that nocturnal adoration should be introduced to the Filipino faithful. They believe that if the faithful especially the men, can adore the Lord, the Lord Himself will bless not only the devotees but the whole land.
