Vergara was impressed with the museum’s collection, particularly the Filipiniana collection on the babaylan (so-called priests during ancient times) and the Jose Rizal collection. He said that he will endorse museum visits to parochial schools within his diocese.
After visiting the museum and library, Vergara officiated at the First Friday Mass, followed by lunch with the Lopez family and Lopez Group CEOs. The Energy Development Corporation choir provided the music during the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. This was the first time the bishop of Pasig came to celebrate Mass at Benpres Building.
