Saint Ezekiel Moreno y Diaz (1848 – 1906) is an Augustinian Recollect whose mission is to serve and solidify his pastoral zeal for the benefit of the people in need. He was beatified by Pope Paul VI on November 1, 1975 and canonized on October 11, 1992 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. He is a prior of the Recollect haciendas of Bacoor, Imus, and Dasmariñas, Cavite. When the cholera plague ravaged the barrios of Mambog and Salinas in Bacoor, Cavite, Saint Ezekiel gave the sacrament of the anointing of the sick to 3,197 victims. In 2011, Mayor Strike B. Revilla, in cooperation with the Tourism Office, inaugurated the park in commemoration of Saint Ezekiel Moreno’s dedication, and contribution to the people of Cavite, Las Piñas City and City of Bacoor.
