The habit of doing the novena was carried to Lipa by the Redemptorist Rector of Lipa, Fr. Gerar O’ Donnel, the one who administered the construction of the first redemptorist parish in Malate, Manila- later relocated at Baclaran as the National Shrine in 1932.
The redemptorist in Lipa became popular because of the image of Our Lady of Perpetual Help which was later found in a tree trunk cut by a church worker in 2009. The image since then attracted many devotees.
