Renewing ecological life and mission

JCAP Reconciliation with Creation team

Beginning with gratitude and reflecting on the letter of Father General Adolfo Nicolás in preparation for the 36th General Congregation, the Reconciling with Creation Reflection workshop recently held at the Culture and Ecology Center in Bendum, Bukidnon, Philippines renewed life and mission for 35 participants from 10 member countries of the Jesuit Conference Asia Pacific (JCAP), giving depth to ecological action.

For three days with no Internet, email, and cellular phone signal, participants from Jesuit social, pastoral, and education apostolates, the local diocese and archdiocese, and a local community group of teachers and youth took part in the local exchanges and four workshop sessions – acting as one.  The search for peace and human development in the Philippine Province “Roadmap of Mindanao” helped all connect.
