International Human Rights Day
People’s Worship Service and Candlelight Vigil for the Disappeared and Killed Religious and Community Leaders in the Philippines
October 3, 2006, Bishop Alberto B. Ramento, a staunch peace and human rights advocate known as the “Bishop of the Poor Peasants and Workers” and former chair of National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP) was found murdered in his rectory. Over the past five years, 27 clergy and religious workers of the United Church of Christ Philippines, United Methodist Church, Philippine Independent Church, and Roman Catholic Churches, along with over 700 other farmers, students, workers, community organizers, human rights workers and journalists, have been violently killed in the Philippines and their deaths remain unprosecuted. Please join us as we remember and honor those who have died or been disappeared, and renew our call for peace, justice, and human rights in the Philippines.
We invite you to bring flowers or your own candles for a candlelight procession following the service. Clergy are asked to please robe in clerical garb.
