They will ask the Holy Father to bless a marker of an Elementary School that they are rebuilding in cooperation with the local Church in Matlang, a remote village of Leyte unreached by any other help after the typhoon.Sant’Egidio is an international lay-people Association of the Catholic Church born in year 1968 in Rome and now present in more than 70 Countries. College students, workers, families, young professionals and employees are part of the Community that is active in different areas of Manila and Cebu since several years ago, experiencing what Pope Francis defined as the 3-Ps : prayer, poor and peace.At the end of a working day, they gather to pray with the common vespers. Once per week they help children of squatter-areas to get a better future through the school of peace, or they visit abandoned elderly people in Tayuman and Antipolo. They promote a new culture facilitating the peace process in Mindanao and campaigning for a worldwide moratorium of the death penalty.
