Ex-pres. Arroyo hosts dinner for bishops
Former President and Pampanga 2nd District Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has hosted a dinner to some Catholic bishops in her residence in Quezon City.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, who was invited in the “social dinner,” said 18 bishops were present at Arroyo’s home in La Vista Subdivision in Quezon City, Sunday night, July 8.
“It was a social dinner although there were prayers said and there was, of course, a general consensus that the Church and State should work together in upholding the general welfare of the people,” Roque said.
He said the event was traditionally being hosted by the former president.
“She would meet them when she was President. It only stopped when she was in detention in the hospital. But I understand whenever there is a conclave, whenever they have their annual meeting, the former President will host a dinner for some of the Bishops. I had the good fortune of being invited and we had a good number of attendees last night,” Roque said.
