Mass & Prayer Rally for Truth and Accountability

Yesterday afternoon we held a mass and prayer rally at the Ateneo de Davao University and Freedom Park as a response to the call for a communal action for truth. Over a thousand students, religious and members of civil society groups turned up for this event. Fr. Antonio Samson, SJ, (president of the University) presided at the mass while Fr. Albert Alejo read the statement. There were 8 priests who concelebrated (2 Redemptorists and 6 Jesuits). After the mass, we gathered outside the university, in front of the Freedom Park for the candle-lighting and noise barrage.
