The parish was established on 1 May 1954.[1] The temple is dedicated to the Virgin of Fatima. It is held by the Claretians,[2] who also run the adjacent private school Colegio y Liceo Nuestra Señora de Fátima (established 1960).[3] Originally the celebrations were held in a crypt under the school; the current temple was built in the early 1980s, in brickwork.
