The Philippines House of Representatives has passed House Bill No. 364, which declares July 27 a special one-off non-working public holidays in the Philippines to commemorate the centennial of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC).
Five years ago (07-Jul-2009), then Philippines President, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, had declared July 27 of 2009 and every year thereafter, as "Iglesia ni Cristo Day", a special working holiday.
Later that year (02-Sep-2009 and 04-Sep-2009), Philippines President, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, had also declared Monday, September 7, 2009, as a non-working public holiday throughout the country to coincide with the funeral of Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) executive minister Erano "Ka Erdy" Manalo.
Note that a similar bill needs to be introduced in the Philippines Senate and that, in any event, July 27 falls on a Sunday in 2014.
