Walk for Life on February 18
Posted on February 16, 2017 at 1:30 PM
The Lasallian Community Development Center is enjoining the community to join the “Walk for Life” activity spearheaded by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines-Episcopal Commission on the Laity through the Sangguniang Laiko ng Pilipinas. The activity will be held on February 18, 2017 at the Quirino Granstand, Manila.
The event aims to gather everyone who advocates for right to life and human dignity. Symbolically, the procession is a walk for those suffering from violence, injustice, addiction, and many other forms of threat against dignity and sanctity of life. Students without classes, faculty members, and other sectors of DLSU-D are encouraged to participate as this action is aligned with our advocacy.
The Walk for Life kicks off at 4:30 in the morning and ends by 8:00 a.m. The event is a prayer procession around Quirino Granstand so participants are advised to wear comfortable shoes. Participants from De La Salle Philippines are also advised to wear green shirts as this is the designated color for De La Salle.
As the event is a prayer procession, participants are also urged to bring rosary, water, and some food. They may also bring their own placards with slogans, white and yellow flaglets, ribbons and tarpaulin banners.
Interested participants may reach LCDC at local 3068 or through its direct line at (046) 481-1939 so the Center coordinate the names of the participants and transportation. For students, the Center can also help facilitate the request for Parent’s Consent Form (PCF).
