Holy Family School students, teachers, and the Siervas de San Jose Sisters joined various faith communities and civil society groups in an ecological march dubbed “Eco Walk” held on October 4. Convened by the Ecological Justice Interfaith
Movement (ECOJIM), the march is a concrete response to the invitation of Pope Francis to care for the planet, which he calls “our common home.” This is also in conjunction with the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi who is the patron saint of ecologists.
The participants assembled in four designated areas in Quezon City by 5:30 a.m., each of which represent one of the four traditional elements: earth, wind, water, and fire. Then participants converged at the Quezon Memorial Circle at 8:00 AM where reciting of lively chants, singing, and dancing took place.
