About Museo de Santisima Trinidad (An Online Museum)

NOTE: The plan to establish a “brick & mortar:” museum for the MHTP remains a dream.                                                                                      In the meantime, this online museum continues to serve as an alternative place.

In celebration of the 75th Patronal Feast of the Most Holy Trinity Parish (1932-2007). Parroquia de Balic-balic, erected 1925.

A glimpse of an ongoing historical project to preserve the Trinitarian journey of a parish on the hills of Balic-Balic, Sampaloc, Manila.

Starting a dream to build a permanent

and integrated Parish Museum, Archives, & Library.

But otherwise,

just a simple step to make sense

of that which one’s soul seeks (and sometimes, hides from)…

  1. I am a social scientist interested in local Manila history since I got hooked on Nick Joaquin’s works on the subject. I would appreciate very much some information on one of Balic-Balic’s most prominent matriarchs — Mrs. Soledad M. Enriquez (aka Lola Choleng)as well as that of her family down to the third generation. Thank you kindly.

  6. where is it located, is it in the church compound or the legarda’s?

  7. The museo de la Santisima Trinidad is planned to be located inside the church and not at the Legarda residence. The old convento, former Adoration chapel, and now, the office of the parish pastoral workers, will be the site of the parish museum.
