Last February 15, Pax Christi-MCHS members together with members of SilPeace, the interfaith youth organization of Silsilah from Quiapo, participated in a meaningful interaction session to learn about youth peacebuilding and how our different religious beliefs can bring us together. The student members of SilPeace are from Ramon Avencena High School and Manuel L. Quezon University High School.
The participants discussed practical and realistic solutions to issues such as the growing threat of terrorism, religious intolerance, and discrimination. These solutions include the promotion of dialogue through people to people process especially among young people, and the role of education to address misconceptions.
The session became an eye opener to many of the participants and served as the beginning of more committed work towards a world free from hate and religious intolerance. It was facilitated by Mary Ann Lascano, moderator of MC-HS Pax Christi, Alfrein Quirionez from SilPeace and Mirma Tica-Ortiz, moderator of the Pax Christi-Miriam College.
