This group, the Congregacion del Santisimo Nombre del Nino Jesus, of which I am a member, is a Catholic group of lay devotees of the Holy Child Jesus honoring His Most Holy Name based in the Philippines. This group welcomes all devotees of Our Lord Jesus Christ honoring His Holy Childhood and His Most Holy Name. The "Congregacion del Santisimo Nombre del Nino Jesus" was formed August 15, 1979 with 12 founding members who are mostly artists and an off-shoot independent-group of the Malolos Sto. Nino devotees. It was formally established on October 27, 1979 with the guidance of Caremlite nuns and with the blessings of the late Jaime Cardinal L. Sin. In its care now is a beautiful rococo-baroque chapel at the Violago compound in Quezon City where the titular image of its Patron "The Nombre" is enshrined including a replica of the Infant of Prague given by the Carmelite Fathers of Prague.
It is also home to Our Lady of Victories of Prague. A special Novena-Mass is held in the Nombre's honor every Monday at 6:30PM. Masses are also held Wednesdays, 1st Fridays and Sundays also at 6:30PM. Having celebrated in 2004 its Silver Anniversary, the Congre continues to promote devotion to the Nombre and holds several apostolate-activities enriching people's spiritual values and piety through exhibits of various Nino depictions held every January climaxed with a grand 5-hour procession cul,inating at the Luneta Grandstand.
The Congre is also involved in various charitable works, promoting the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. The Congre also conducts pilgrimages to various Catholic spiritual sites and centers in and outside the country. Anniversary celebrations are held yearly at the end of October and the Congre now has more than 30 members in its roster coming from various professions, disciplines and expertise. Founding and prominent members include Ben Farrales, Willi Buhay, Gang Gomez, Nolie Hans, Bobby Valdomar, Dindong Bautista, Efren de Jose, Director Mel Chionglo, Antonio Adriano et.al
