The staff of the Apostolic Vicariate of Bontoc-Lagawe In Mountain Province headed by Baltazar Robles attended a 5-day program in HEAL. They came filled with enthusiasm and openness to learn how best to align their services and response to the challenges called forth by Pope Francis in his encyclical Laudato Si. Learning with the head, the hands and the heart has been the experience of the participants. Daily schedule includes studying, gardening, housework, meditations and a large amount of flexible time. At the end of the program, the staff crafted a concrete action plan for the diocese enthused with the new insights and learning.
