0 72

Emi Calixto-Rubiano is a source of pride for the Catholic faithful.

The Pasay City mayor happily claimed ownership of the idea to make December 8 a non-working holiday every year in honor of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

“Being a Holy Day of Obligation, let us all find time to attend the Mass whether in the Church or online,” the politiko said, adding that she was among the authors of Republic Act 10966, which made the day a holiday.
