The event has the theme ” A Nation United for God and the Family is blessed and protected” The objective of the rally is to show the people that Philippines shouldn’t legalize same sex marriage. A lot of groups and organizations took part of the event such as the Perpetual Succour Hospital, Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, The Couples for Christ org and more. They brought their placards and banners with them which says “NO TO SAME SEX MARRIAGE!” SJSM also has their own to show their support.
Mr. Lito Atienza was present in the said event as well as other congressmens of Cebu. Bishop Jose Palma was supposed to be there but someone came in his behalf. The students were guided by 3 Sisters – Sr. Nancy Bacan, Sr. Maricon Rigor and Sr. Medelyn. The Officer of Student Affairs, Mr. Arnel Calinacion was also there.
The event ended peacefully, happily and successfuly. Thanks be to God!
