Ai Ai delas Alas gets highest Papal medal

Comedienne Ai Ai delas Alas will be conferred the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice (For the Church and the Pope) Papal Award which is said to be the highest honor bestowed to laity by the Pope.

The conferment was made possible through the recommendation of the Diocese of Novaliches headed by Bishop Antonio Tobias. He said the church recognized Ai Ai’s distinguished service that includes her involvement in the construction of the Kristong Hari Church in Commonwealth Ave., Quezon City; the Anawim Lay Missions Foundation, Inc. in Montalban, Rizal; and other charitable works. The conferment ceremony will be on Nov. 11 coinciding with the actress’ 51st birthday, to be held at the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd, Regalado Avenue, Novaliches, Quezon City.

The only other Filipino celebrity who was conferred the same award was Maestro Ryan Cayabyab many years ago.
