It was in 1958 that the propagation of the Fatima Apostolate of the Blue Army started in the Philippines particularly in Mangaldan, Pangasinanwith the team of Bro. Francisco Rosario (+ 1969) and Mrs. Filomena de Guzman (+ April 14, 2013). However it was only on May 13, 1960 that the first Blue Army Chapter in the Philippines was organized in Mangaldan with Mrs. Filomena de Guzman as its President. On October 28, 1967, Mrs. De Guzman was elected the first Archdiocesan President of the Blue Army in the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan and was re-elected on December 10, 1974. It was only after more than twenty (20) years, since the organization of the first Blue Army Chapter in Mangaldan, Pangasinan, that the Blue Army was officially organized in Cebu City, the Queen City of the South, on August 16, 1980 (a Saturday) at the basement of Santo Rosario Parish Church which was then undergoing renovation.
