Ambassador Petronila Garcia greets INC on its 105th anniversary; noting remarkable contributions improving the lives of Filipinos in the Phils and abroad

Ottawa– Philippine Ambassador to Canada, Petronila Garcia, conveys her greetings and congratulations to Brother Eduardo Manalo and the congregations of Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) throughout the world on this milestone occasion of the Church’s 105th Anniversary and the 10th anniversary of Bro. Manalo’s leadership.

Here’s the full excerpt of the greetings:

“As the Philippines grew in leaps and bounds in the last century, so, too, has the Iglesia Ni Cristo grown in strength and number. The foundation of all societies rests with its people and the work that the Iglesia NI Cristo has conducted through its charitable and humanitarian projects has made remarkable contributions to improving the lives of many Filipinos, both in the Philippines and abroad.

I wish to note that your congregation in Canada is also a part of a large Filipino diaspora that is widely known for their good work and positive impact on society. I thank you for your engagement with the local communities in Canada and for always keeping the Philippines close to your hearts.

I look forward to your continued support for the Embassy and Consulates General Posts as we serve the Filipino community in Canada.

As your congregation looks to the future, I extend my good wishes to Iglesia Ni Cristo for a successful and meaningful celebration.”

Signed: Petronila P. Garcia, Ambassador
