Brother Eraño G. Manalo, also known as Ka Erdy to millions of INC faithful, will be laid to rest at noon Monday, September 7 at the Tabernacle near the Central Temple of the Iglesia ni Cristo Central Complex. Eventually, his remains will be transferred to a mausoleum now under construction inside the complex.
Straight from the Net 25 website is this press release from INC spokesperson Bro. Bienvenido Santiago:
Malacañang has declared the day of Ka Erdy's funeral on September 7, 2009, Monday as a special non-working holiday to give INC members and other mourners across the country the opportunity to pay their respects to the great Iglesia Ni Cristo leader. I saw that report being made by an ABS-CBN female reporter in tonight's edition of TV Patrol. That means no classes in school and no work for employees and workers on Monday.
