The Fruit of Justice is Rooted in Faith: A Virtual Pilgrimage to the Philippines

The Fruit of Justice is Rooted in Faith: A Virtual Pilgrimage to the Philippines

The Central Pacific Conference of the United Church of Christ, Global Ministries, and the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines (ICHRP-US) invite you to participate in a virtual pilgrimage to the Philippines. Filipino partner churches and institutions have deep roots that have weathered many adversities—from political conflicts and poverty, to historic storms and now the impacts of COVID-19. Join us in a series of visits with representatives of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines and other partners engaged in the joyful ministry and faithful public witness of the church. Through live presentations, recorded sessions, and engaged discussion—and even a demonstration of Filipino cooking!— participants will learn about Filipino history and culture and how it shapes distinctive theology and mission.

REGISTER HERE!

Cost $25.00 per person
100% of the cost will go to Philippine partners for the production of pre-recorded materials, visits to various communities, and support of various projects.
