The members of the Papal Entourage celebrated private daily masses at the Chapel  of Our Lady of the Star for the entire duration of their stay at Hotel Benilde. For this purpose, the room in front of the Chapel was transformed as a temporary Sacristy for the Papal Visit. The Sacristy is a room where sacred vessels, linens, books, vestments and all else necessary to perform the sacred functions of the Church are kept. It is also the place of preparation for the clergy, and as they have obligations to fulfill both before and after the celebration of liturgical services. The Sacristy is, by its nature, a holy place.

During their stay, the high ranking Cardinals were having an average of 5 masses a day in this Chapel. Come and make a wish!
