Laudato Si Conference opens 6th Season of Creation

The Archdiocese of Manila will open its 6th Season of Creation and the 3rd World Day of  Prayer for Creation with a Laudato Si Conference during the Manila Archdiocesan General Pastoral Assembly (MAGPAS) on Saturday, September 1, 2018, at the Cardinal Sin Auditorium in Paco Manila, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The theme for this year’s celebration is “Go and Repair my house, which, as you can see, lies in ruins.” A timely call for all of us during this time of global ecological crisis. Pope Francis reminded us in his message during the 3rd year anniversary of the encyclical, Laudato Si.

The conference will develop the Laudato Si theme of Integral Ecology and inspire us to the Ecological Conversion that most of us need to undergo in order to help repair the damage done to God’s creation.

Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick S. Pabillo will deliver a talk on Laudato Si and Ecological Conversion at 8:45 a.m. and will preside the Holy Eucharist at 4:00 p.m.

Aside from the various talks on Laudato Si, Archdiocese of Manila will also launch its campaign of addressing plastic pollution through  Ecobrick Workshop and demonstration of the use of the finished product. Ecobrick is the most practical, simple and accessible technology that everyone can participate.

From September 2 to October 6, one Laudato Si chapter from the Faith Exposed Video of Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle will be shown before the start of every Sunday Mass as a way of continuing education and call to ecological conversion.

Meanwhile, all the parishes in the Archdiocese of Manila will celebrate the Season of Creation from September 2, 2018 to October 6, 2018 with various concrete activities like Ecobrick and LampAraw assembling as witnessing to the proper care of our common Home.
