SAN FERNANDO CITY, La Union, Feb. 12 (PIA) — The alumni of the Christ the King College (CKC) of this city has chosen to give back to the environment during their homecoming on February 8 and 9.
A number of alumni contributed in developing an “eco garden sanctuary” inside the school campus, which La Union Bishop Rodolfo Beltran blessed on February 8.
The sanctuary was their share in answering the call of government to help in saving the environment.
The school directress, Sr. Teresita A Lara, said in her message, that the sanctuary symbolizes their “spirit of servant leadership” and love for the environment which has been constantly degraded by human activities.
The sanctuary is also a place where students, alumni, and the public can muse or ponder on the simplification or complexities of life.
In the blessing of the sanctuary, the alumni, students, parents, faculty and staff were called by the Bishop to be “transformed to become responsible stewards of God’s creation.”
Those present in the blessing were also called by the Bishop to choose simple life styles and avoid polluting the environment.
The alumni members also pledged their commitment to push their best effort in loving and protecting the environment in their daily lives. (MCA/MNA- PIA1, Ilocos Sur)
