Virtual Conversation: Laudato Si' and Covid-19 Global Pandemic

Two members of the Jesuit Volunteers Philippines, Dean Tony La Viña B2 and Patria Gwen M.L. Borcena B9, are actively engaged in environmental issues both locally and internationally. In 2015, Dean Tony and Gwen held a talk "On the care for our common home", based on Pope Francis’ second encyclical, Laudato Si'. The talk was held a month after the encyclical was released during the Ignatian Festival at the Ateneo de Manila University.

On the occasion of Laudato Si’s Special Anniversary [May 24, 2020 – May 24, 2021], our two JVPs will again share about the encyclical vis-à-vis its challenges and implications amid the coronavirus pandemic. This time, they will be joined by three fellow Ateneo alumni – Fr. Albert E. Alejo, SJ Ph.D., Prof. Fabian M. Dayrit, Ph.D., and Prof. Donna Paz T. Reyes, Ph.D. who are all environmental advocates.

This significant virtual event will take place on two Sundays - April 18, 2021, and May 9, 2021, from 10:30 AM - 12:00 NN. For inquiries, reservations, and zoom link/meeting ID and passcode, kindly email at companions2011@gmail.com. Please join the conversation and help promote the event. 

Who we are

The Jesuit Volunteers Philippines Foundation Inc. (JVPFI) engages in nation-building by recruiting, training and sending volunteers
for a year of service to marginalized communities and areas with the greatest need. Jesuit volunteers empower these communities as teachers,
formators, community organizers, or enterprise development officers assigned to under-resourced schools, parishes, and NGOs across the country.

VISION

A just society that celebrates the fullness of life realized with the help of a community embodying Ignatian Spirituality.

MISSION

We aim to form a community composed of volunteers, former volunteers and associates who nurture and live out the principles and values of Ignatian Spirituality embodied in and realized through their individual vocation.

HISTORY AND REACH

In 1980, nine young Jesuit Volunteers set off to serve in the peripheries of Mindanao. Now on its 39th year, JVPFI has successfully deployed over a thousand volunteers to 317 partner institutions in marginalized communities across the nation, serving where they are needed most.

CORE VALUES
