Cardinal Jose F. Advincula, the newly elected Archbishop of Manila led the tree planting activity which is named Cardinal Jose Advincula Grove of Philippine Native Trees on June 21, 2021 in the Archbishop’s Residence in Lawaan, Roxas City, Capiz. 45 native trees were planted symbolizing the 45th sacerdotal anniversary of the said Cardinal.
The project was in collaboration with the Local Government of Capiz through Capiz Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (CaPENRO) and Capiz Archdiocesan Social Action Commission (CASAC).
This was a response to the advocate of the Laudato Si of Pope Francis, where it aims to take care of the environment.
