Sept. 30 2016, 8:00 p.m. – THE RICH history of the Catholic Church in the Philippines is showcased in an exhibit mounted by the Museo ng Arkidiyosesis ng Maynila (Mana) at the Arzobispado de Manila in Intramuros.

Titled “Pilgrimage in Time,” the exhibit is divided into six parts, beginning with the introduction of Christianity in the 16th century up to the contemporary Church.

The exhibit features an array of paintings, sketches, memorabilia and images made of wood and ivory.

A souvenir from the 33rd International Eucharistic Congress in Manila in 1937, memorabilia from St. Lorenzo Ruiz’ beatification in 1981, and the chalice and ciborium used by Pope Francis during the Mass at Quirino Grandstand last year are on display.

The exhibit also features artifacts from the Manila Cathedral, such as a tabernacle and three wooden statues made by Sotero Garcia from the 1879 cathedral facade.

Articles and liturgical items used by the late Manila archbishops, such Jaime Cardinal Sin and Dominican prelates Pedro Payo, O.P. and Bernardino Nozaleda, O.P., are also on display.

The exhibit was opened last Sept. 19 and will run until November.
