A procession from the Ateneo University to the San Pedro Cathedral took place at 8 p.m. where the relic stayed for a day before it was transferred to the St. Francis Xavier Regional Major Seminary (REMASE) on October 16. On that day, the priests and religious had the chance to venerate the relic as part of the celebration of the Year of the Clergy and Consecrated Persons before it was brought back to the cathedral for the celebration of the Mass at 5:30 p.m.

Culminating the visit of the heart relic before it was brought back to Batangas, a Holy Eucharist was held at 6 a.m. at the cathedral. (Jheng Manalang Prado/RCAM-AOC)
