[Events] Pasion Y Gloria Exhibit in Manila Cathedral

Manila Cathedral (Minor Basilica of the Immaculate Conception) is currently hosting an ecclesiastical exhibit known as the Pasion Y Gloria. The exhibit will showcase different Filipino Religious images that are usually used during Lent or the so-called cuaresma (forty days of Lent, fasting, reflecting, and penitence) . These images include antique pieces from family collections which date back from as early as the 17th century, as well as newly crafted images by talented Filipino artists.
