Medical Mission Sisters in the Philippines are celebrating the 10th anniversary of HEAL (Haven for Ecological and Alternative Living). Located in Villasis, HEAL advocates a new way of looking at our threatened planet and shares alternative ways toward more sustainable lives and communities. Established in 2006, HEAL offers a variety of programs to religious organizations, schools and other groups. Daily Earth care, meditation, reflection, group sharing and liturgies help participants experience a new way of appreciating and relating to the larger community of life.
