Philippines: Promoting a Culture of Dialogue as a Path to Peace
To mark the Year of Ecumenism, Interreligious Dialogue and Indigenous Peoples in 2020, the Catholic Church has unveiled a new logo and theme for the celebration.
According to the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, the special year aims to celebrate “the human fraternity by promoting the culture of dialogue as a path to peace”.
It also aims “to work for unity and harmony while respecting diversity and to recognize indigenous peoples’ identities, spiritualities and ancestral domain.”
The celebration is part of the nine-year “spiritual journey”, which started in 2013, to prepare for the 500th anniversary of the arrival of Christianity in the Philippines in 2021.
