July 27 is “Iglesia ni Cristo Day” — Malacanang

July 7, 2009 10:06 am 

MANILA, July 7 — Malacanang announced on Tuesday the official declaration of July 27 of this year and every year thereafter as “Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) Day.”

Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita said the declaration is in keeping with Republic Act No. 9645, which was signed into law by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on June 12, 2009.

The new law designates July 27 as a special national working holiday in recognition of the founding anniversary of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) in the Philippines.

Ermita said the declaration also coincides with the organization’s 95th founding anniversary this year. The group had its beginnings in 1914 in Punta, Sta. Ana, Manila, inspired by the preaching of Ka (Brother) Felix Y. Manalo whom this church recognizes as God’s Messenger.

President Arroyo wishes to congratulate in advance the INC, at present under the stewardship of Executive Minister Ka Eraño G. Manalo and Deputy Executive Minister Ka Eduardo V. Manalo, on this year’s landmark anniversary, Secretary Ermita said.

Likewise, the President would like to thank the INC for the very active and significant roles its leaders and members have always played not only in the spiritual and moral formation of the people over the past several decades, but in nation-building as well, he added. (PNA) scs/JCA
