The Department of Environment and Natural Resources – Cordillera Administrative Region (DENR-CAR) joined the Catholic faithful of the Diocese of Baguio in culminating the Season of Creation on October 14, 2020.
This month long celebration that commenced last September 1 calls all Christians to come together to heal man’s relationship with Creation and with his fellowmen.
After a tree planting ceremony in Dalicno, Itogon Benguet, a Eucharistic Celebration ensued presided over by the Most Reverend Victor B. Bendico, D.D., Bishop of the Diocese of Baguio, together with some of the members of the Clergy in the Parish of St. Charles Borromeo.
Bendico called for an “ecological conversion” based on the “splendid communion” that exist in Creation.
Meanwhile, DENR-CAR Regional Executive Director, Ralph C. Pablo reminded the congregation that the destiny of humanity and of Creation is determined by the responsible use of this planet’s resources.
“The imbalance in Creation, generated by human desire for wealth and power, remains the primary threat that destroys Creation and humanity,” he said.
This was seconded by Fay W. Apil, Regional Director of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau - CAR, who called for striking a balance between man’s extraction of the earth’s natural minerals and his responsibility of being a steward of creation.
