The lay ministers planted a total of 150 seedlings of plant trees and fruit-bearing trees inside the 12 hectare school campus. The designated planting area was only in front of the constructed chapel, wherein it will soon become the chapel of the Ecce Homo.
Rev. Fr. Romeo Coronel, OSA, CSN-Greenhills campus administrator, and Rev. Fr. Genesis P. Labana, OSA, spiritual director of the EMHC, of the Basilica community were also present in the activity.
With the overwhelming outcome of the tree planting and the enthusiasm of the lay ministers, they plan to plant more trees in the area.
The tree planting activity is part of the thrust of the Basilica as a response to the call of our Holy Father Pope Francis to take care of our common home, the earth. It was also two months ago that the Cofradia de Lourdes conducted the same activity.
