Cardinal Tagle leads Walk for Climate on Sept. 19




Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle will lead the “Walk for Climate” on  September 19, 2014, after the Mass at the Manila Cathedral at 6:30 a.m. The Walk for Climate highlights the Season of Creation in the Ecclesiastical Province of Manila composed of an archdiocese and 11 suffragan dioceses from September 1 to October 4.

This Walk for Climate is in solidarity with the Global March for Climate, and is a call for urgent action against climate change. The walk’s parish stations will carry messages on the environment calling on the government to take urgent steps to reduce climate risk by stopping the use of coal plants for energy generation, and by stopping aggressive and destructive developments such as reclamations, agricultural land conversions, and mining.

The Walk from the Cathedral stop at the Our Lady of the Pillar Church (Sta. Cruz Church), to proceed to other churches in the city, in a relay manner: St. Vincent de Paul in San Marcelino, San Fernando de Dilao in Paco, St. Joseph the Worker in Palanan, Santa Clara de Montefalco in Pasay. It will end at the National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help (Baclaran Church).

Bishops and priests of the ecclesiastical province will celebrate the Mass and join the walk along with environment officials from the government led by Commissioner Yeb Sano.
