HISTORY

It was in 1995 when the job of creating a newsletter was handed in the Commission on Social Communications in the parish. It started its life as "Ang Eskapularyo," or "The Scapular" in English, referring to the garment associated with the devotion to Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

On the second Sunday of January 1995, the name of the newsletter was born out of a scapular seen by Nilo Valerio in the image of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the church. When he kissed to it, the name "Ang Eskapularyo" (The Scapular) struck in his head to be the name of the official parish newsletter.
 
After the mass, he called out the best graphic artist in the Ministry of Altar Servers and they discussed the idea of a newsletter; later they created a sketch that will be the first draft of the newsletter, researches were made and at the end of the day, everything was made - and presented on the following meeting.
 
On February 1995 during the meeting of the Parish Pastoral Council, the name and logo of the newsletter was presented. The draft was presented to every member and was given an approval. Next were the copies of the newsletter in the mimeograph because there are is no funds yet given for printing. Fortunately, funds were ultimately given for mass production of the newsletter which has evolved into the present newsletter known as "Ang Eskapularyo."

In 2013, the name of the newsletter was changed from "Ang Eskapularyo" to "Ang Simbahan ng Kalayaan" (The Church of Freedom) to promote the church's historical background as well as to solidify its identity as it's official newsletter.
 
The name of the newsletter reverted to "Ang Eskapularyo" (The Scapular) in 2014.

Since then, the job of creating the newsletter has expanded and is the organization responsible for releasing published works for the parish.
