Bishop Utleg spearheads Bike for Ecology 2008

Novermber 15, 2008. Bishop Utleg spearheads the Bike for Ecology through biking from Our Lady of Fatima Parish, Cadaratan, Bacarra to St. John Bosco Parish in Baresbes, Dingras, Ilocos Norte on the occasion for the Cristo Rey Celebration for the year 2008. There are more or less than 150 bikers who joined the activity. The group passed through St. Andrew Parish, Bacarra; St. Nicolas de Tolentino Parish, Vintar; Sta. Monica Parish, Sarrat; St. Anne Parish, Piddig and St. James the Greater Parish in Solsona. St. Anne Parish and Saint Anne Academy served cooked bananas, ripe bananas, biscuits, water and coffee to the bikers when they passed by said parish/school. After the snacks, they continued biking going to Baresbes, Dingras passing through St. James the Greater Parish, Solsona, Ilocos Norte.

This sctivity has been done for seven years now with the Commission on Social Action of the Diocese of Laoag as the frontrunner. The purpose of this year’s activity is to promote ecology awareness among our people. It was written in the invitation they gave to us, from Lao Tzu: “If you plan for a year, plant rice; if you plan for ten years, plant trees; if you plan for a hundred years, educate mankind.”
