When the clock ticked at 4 p.m. in the Philippines last July 27, members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo in the country and around the world simultaneously started the grand celebration of the church’s 95th anniversary.
There were 14 regional celebrations all over the country with the biggest at the Araneta Coliseum and Quirino Grandstand at the national capital region. Second among the largest could be the celebration of INC brethrens at Villa Del Sol, City of San Fernando Pampanga where members from the provinces in Region 3 all participated.
The celebration was highlighted by a message from no less than the INC Executive Minister Brother Erano G. Manalo. A special grand concert led by our very own Miss Saigon Lea Salonga at the Central Tabernacle was also shown all over the world during the simultaneous celebrations. In Pampanga alone, the local government and police estimated the attendees at 200,000.
The main roads of the city were closed to regular traffic, particularly the Gapan-San Fernando-Olongapo road. Hundreds of buses and private cars were parked along GSo, Lazatin Avenue, Dolores, San Agustin and at the Capitol Compound due to the huge number of INC members who joined the celebration in Central Luzon.
