HES sows seeds of peace in Jamshedpur

Human Ecology Society (HES), Jamshedpur established by Fr. Joseph Kalathil, SJ organized an Interfaith gathering and prayer on 30 January 2024 on the martyrdom day of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. The ‘Human Ecology Society’ had already initiated a sereis of ‘sowing of peace’ sesssions by which students of different communities made friends and strengthened their intercultural understanding and mutual relationship through cross-cultural communication and meetings. 

HES makes efforts to bring together like-minded people who actively promote peace. Drawing inspiration from Pope Benedict’s idea on human ecology, which refers to the profound connection between natural equilibrium and human equilibrium, said Fr Joseph Kalathil, SJ. If humans truly desire peace, they must be conscious of the links between humans, their communities, institutions, and civilizations and issues concerning ecological, environmental, and sustainability-related issues.  Respect for nature is integral to living on the planet as a human person. “HES is committed to building bridges between people from diverse backgrounds, and I’m happy to be part of such initiatives that seek fellowship among people”, said Samuel Cyril, one of the collaborators of Fr. Kalathil, SJ.
