· Two communities committed to reconstructing the Christ the King chapel ·
Dialogue and coexistence can be witnessed between Muslims and Christians in Zamboanga, an island of the Philippines where there have been clashes between rebels of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) and government troops. Following the devastating fire that destroyed the Christ the King chapel in the Santa Catalina district, a group of Muslims thought it was time to end tension with the Catholic community, and thus began the reconstruction of the chapel. “When we saw them with carpenter's tools”, said Jimmy Villaflores, head of Santa Catalina, “we thought they were just looking for damaged mosques to rebuild. Instead they told us they wanted to give us a hand in reconstructing our chapel”.
