As per the text of the Republic Act 9645, signed into law by the President on June 12, 2009, "Iglesia ni Cristo Day" is to be a special working holiday.

Coincidentally, July 27, 2009, is also the date chosen by President, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for her last SONA (State of the Nation Address), an event which has, in the past (2005-07-22), often been declared a non-working public holiday.
