Faber Hall Function Room, Ateneo de Manila University
The Ignatian Renewal Network (IRN), spearheaded by the university’s Office of the Alumni Relations (OAR), Ateneo Alumni Association (AAA), Congregantes de Maria, and Companions in the Ignatian Journey, together with the John J. Carroll Institute on Church and Social Issues (JJCICSI) has created a venue for conversations and reflection on national issues for the alumni/alumnae towards possible personal or communal action. Let us gather as an alumni community to listen, discuss and reflect on the proposal for charter change that may lead to federalism.
Objectives of the forum are as follows:
1. To share a critical analysis of the present national situationer;
2. To explain to the Ateneo alumni community the pertinent points surrounding the issues on the charter change that may lead to federalism;
3. To present a lens informed by relevant Church teaching towards understanding and appreciation of these issues, and explore options for a Christian response;
4. To provide a space for discernment and conversation in order to come up with a personal and possibly collective and effective response(s) or praxis to the issues at hand.
