The Roman Catholic Diocese of Cubao (Latin: Dioecesis Cubaoensis) is a Roman Rite diocese of the Latin Church of the Catholic Church in the Philippines. The diocese was created by Pope John Paul II on June 28, 2003 by virtue of Papal Bull Quo Satius Provideretur,[1] and was canonically erected on August 28, 2003, Feast of Saint Augustine, from the Archdiocese of Manila. The diocese previously existed as the Ecclesiastical District of Quezon-City South (renamed the district of Cubao in 2002).

San Nicolas de Tolentino Parish (part of San Isidro) was included in Cubao under the Vicariate of Sto.

Thus, the former Vicariate of St. Joseph (of which St. Joseph the Worker Parish is a part) in the Ecclesiastical District of Kal-Ma-Na (now, the Diocese of Kalookan) was renamed Vicariate of the Sacred Heart.

April 10, 2003 The Holy Family Chaplaincy in GSIS Village, Project 8 was established (now a full-fledged parish).

June 28, 2003 The Diocese of Cubao was created by virtue of Pope John Paul II’s Papal Bull Quo Satius Provideretur. The new local church constitutes the southern part of Quezon City, starting from Tandang Sora Avenue and Mactan Street extending southward. Most Rev. Honesto "Ness" F. Ongtioco, DD, STL, Bishop of Balanga (Bataan) was named first diocesan bishop of Cubao.

August 14, 2003 In preparation for the canonical erection of the new diocese, then Manila Auxiliary Bishop Socrates Villegas (outgoing district bishop of Cubao and now Archbishop of Lingayen-Dagupan) presided over the Solemn Dedication Rites of the Immaculate Conception Parish as it would be soon elevated into the status of a cathedral.

August 28, 2003 The new Diocese of Cubao was canonically erected and the first Bishop of Cubao, Most Rev. Honesto F. Ongtioco, was installed in the presence of the Apostolic Nuncio Antonio Franco, Manila Archbishop Jaime L. Cardinal Sin and numerous bishops gracing the occasion. The Parish of the Immaculate Conception along 39 Lantana Street, Barangay Immaculate Conception, Cubao, Quezon City was liturgically proclaimed the cathedral or seat of the diocese, with Reverend Monsignor Daniel P. Sta. Maria as its first Cathedral Rector and first Vicar-General

He was ordained bishop on April 30 at Cubao Cathedral. Fr. Jose "Bong" Tupino took over the post of Episcopal Vicar for the Clergy, which was left vacant upon Msgr. Vergara's election as bishop. The first ever priest to be ordained for the diocese that year was Fr. Ronaldo Santos.

2006 New assignments for parish priests took effect, between January and June. Due to shortage of number of parish priests, at least seven priests were assigned as pastors to two parishes simultaneously. On May 15, Vicar General Msgr. Mortillero, representing the Bishop, announced the creation of the new San Isidro Labrador Quasi-Parish in Pinyahan.

2007 Four priests were ordained: Fr. Gilberto Fortunato Dumlao, Fr. Herbel Torres, Fr. Victor William Garcia, and Fr. Ronald Monis.

2009 Second minor reassignment for the clergy took place. Fr. Fredrick Edward Simon assumed the office of Chancellor.

2010. Fr. Ronald M. Roberto was ordained priest.

2011 Two priests were incardinated for the Diocese of Cubao, namely Fr. Nicolas Salamanca (former Recoleto) and Fr. Luisito Caupayan (former Claretian). Saint Pedro Poveda College along EDSA and Poveda Street, Barangay Ugong Norte, transferred its proper jurisdiction from the Archdiocese of Manila to the Diocese of Cubao.

2012 Second major reassigment for the clergy took place between January and February. With the retirement of Msgr. Mortillero, Msgr. Sta. Maria was reappointed Vicar-General. Fr. Ronaldo Macale was named Episcopal Vicar for the Clergy. Fr. Nicolas Salamanca became the new Episcopal Vicar for the Religious. Fr. Ronaldo Santos was named Oeconomus. Fr. Raymond Joseph L. Arre, STL, was named Episcopal Vicar for Catholic Schools and Superintendent of the Diocese of Cubao Educational System, Inc. (DOCES).

On February 5, the Holy Family Quasi-Parish in GSIS Village (Barangay Sangandaan) was elevated into a full-fledged parish, with the installation of Fr. Herbel Torres as first parish priest. On September 8 came the ordination of another priest, Fr. Rey Hector Paglinawan.

2013 With the death of Fr. Emmanuel Sarez, Fr. Jose Fortunato Garces, OAR, was named as temporary pastor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish in Project 6 with acting capacity. Fr. Nemesio Tolentin, OAR, was named parish priest of San Nicolas de Tolentino Parish. Msgr. Benjamin Razon retired as parish priest of Immaculate Conception Parish in Project 8 and was succeeded by Fr. Alfredo Pascual. On March 2, Fr. Victor Angelo Parlan was ordained to the priesthood. Fr. Ruben Villote, the founder of the Center for Migrant Youth, also a priest of the diocese, died on July 6.[4] The diocese marks the tenth anniversary of its inauguration on August 28, with the conferral of the Civitas Supra Montem Awards to distinguished lay leaders for their longtime meritorious service to the local church.
