The RVA Chapel was renovated in 1996 and was inaugurated and blessed by His Eminence Jaime Cardinal L. Sin on June 4 of the same year.
The Management and Staff beleived in the urgency of RVA's mission. Everyday, Mass is celebrated for that purpose. It is also celebrated to strengthen the bond - spiritually and socially - between each and every employee of RVA for that fruitful apostolate and meaningful living and working together for the love founded on Christ.
And as the Church enters the threshold of the third Christian millenium, Radio Veritas Asia, together with the Shepherds of Asia, become more deeply aware of the increasing commitment towards the task of evangelization.
RVA, its Management and Staff, together with the Bishops of Asia and Europe, accepts the challenges the year 2000 brings with the ultimate goal of ushering in and establishing God's kingdom in the hearts and minds of the peoples of Asia.
The stronghold of RVA headed by Most Reverend, Bishop George Anahil as Chairman of FABC-OSC and Ms. Erlinda G. So as RVA Manager for RVA's daily operational activities. His Eminence, Jaime Cardinal L. Sin is PREIC's Chairman of the Board.

"...We were not chosen for our merits because we deserved to be chosen in preference to any of our neighbors. We were given that gift only by graciousness of the Lord our God. ...WE must now work and strive to be worthy of it lest otherwise we deserve to lose it, to have taken away from us, and given to others who will show a greater appreciation, a more sensitive response to it. Radio Veritas Asia must reach out, Radio Veritas Asia must proclaim the Gospel to all the world". (Cardinal Sin)
Partner Centers are RVA's collaborators in the target areas. They produce 60 minutes of programs every month. These programs in turn are capsulized by each language service to supplement the locally produced programs in order to complete the 25-minute broadcasts both in the morning and in the evening.
RVA has 14 partner Centers for ten language Services: Bengali (2), Burmese (1), Hindi (1), Indonesian (3), Mandarin (1), Sinhala (1), Tamil (2), Telugu (1), Urdu (1) and Vietnamese (1).
The audience of Radio Veritas Asia represents a cross section of society, from the youth to the working professionals, from the teachers to the Church leaders, from the community head to the national leaders.
RVA listeners come from a deverse backdrop of religions: Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Catholics and Protestants. What is significant is the fact that, through a big majority are non- Catholics, they articulate their thrist for the knowledge about God, about Jesus Christ and His Gospel teachings.
