The lot where the site of Our Lady of Fatima stands today was donated by a very good-natured Muslim couple. When I arrived in 2011, it was under the leadership of Alejandro Omamalin. By October of that year, the chapel became the second to establish a Legion of Mary presidium. Jam Jura Vender became its first presidium head.

Ali was succeeded by Peregrina Momo in 2012. The present design of the chapel was courtesy of Olutanga native artist Daniel Pagador who was known in Sabah, Malaysia for his orangutan landmark in Sandakan.

It is the only chapel in the parish who has a baptistry.

The house of the chapel head Doctora Momo and his husband Sir Eusebio Momo,  became the humble home of many parish visitors. When the Ipil Mission Team was elevated into a district in October 2012, the SVD Provincial Fr. Jing-jong Rocha and his council together with the SVD missionaries assigned in the island, had their first ever-meeting in the Momo Residence. In June 2013, Healing priest Fr. Jake Bacolod and his team stayed here during the whole duration of their stay in the island. The chapel of Malinao was the second to hold the Healing Mass and Healing Session in June 13, 2013, which also coincided with the birthday of Doctora Peregrina Momo.
