   For:  The University community


From:  Jaime G. Hofileña

            Vice President for Social Development


The Metro Manila leg of *Lakbay-Buhay,* a nationally-coordinated,
cross-country event principally aimed at helping create broad public
opinion against the passage in the Senate of its version of a bill
restoring the death penalty, will find its way to the Loyola Heights campus
today, Friday, 19 May 2017.


The initiative is a 21-day public education and advocacy campaign which
takes the form of a march-caravan led by 15 leaders of such basic social
sectors as the urban poor, farmers, indigenous peoples, and workers, among
others.



These 15 core-pilgrims started marching from Cagayan de Oro City to Manila
and are being supported by multi-sectoral groups (people's organizations
and faith-based groups among them) along the way. The marchers are
scheduled to make their way to Katipunan Avenue in the late afternoon of
today, 19 May 2017 by around 5:00pm. Together with partners and fellow
advocates from Quezon City, the University will welcome the pilgrims at the
vicinity of gate 2.5 of the Loyola Heights campus, where a short program
will ensue. Participants will then proceed to the Church of the Gesu for
the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at about 6:30pm.


University President Fr. Jose Ramon T. Villarin SJ will lead both
activities.


The pilgrims will be accommodated at the University Dorm.


We call on all concerned members of the community to be part of the
University contingent which will welcome, and join cause with, the
pilgrims-marchers and all others who are in solidarity with their and the
University's common cause. All are invited as well to attend the Holy Mass.


Please fee free to call on your friends and families to join this prayerful
action for fundamental respect for human life.
