Philippine bishops encourage observance of Earth Hour
March 29, 2012
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines is encouraging Filipinos to observe Earth Hour, an initiative in which individuals and organizations pledge to switch off their lights for one hour on March 31.
“Let us join millions in our country and around the world in switching off non-essential lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 PM, and using this time to engage in activities which promote care for our planet,” said Father Conegundo Garganta, executive secretary of the Episcopal Commission on Youth. “This campaign empowers people to share to the world their own personal contribution on how they can willingly do ways to save Mother Earth.”
