FAITH AND CULTURE — People from all walks of life were united in prayers as the Provincial Ecumenical Ministers Association of Mountain Province called for an ecumenical service at the ground zero of the April 11 fire that gutted residential and commercial structures in Bontoc, Mountain Province. Earlier, Municipal Indigenous Peoples Mandatory Representative George Luis Fakat performed a time-tested cultural cleansing ritual as he and fellow elders beseeched the Supreme God to prevent similar incidents from happening again. In the highlands, faith and culture are inextricably connected. — Mountain Province PNP & Jovi Lopez photos
