HISTORY OF HARMONY VILLAGE IN ZAMBOANGA CITY
1st week of May | May 08, 2015
Thirty one (31) years ago, the Silsilah Dialogue Movement started in a simple way at Suterville, Zamboanga City, in the house of the PIME Fathers on May 9, 1984, on the occasion of the birthday of Fr. Sebastiano D’Ambra, PIME. Silsilah is part of his dream. He started sharing the dream and practiced solidarity with Muslims, Christians and Indigenous People in the areas of Zamboanga City. Now this dream is the dream of many of us in the Movement and not only of Fr. Sebastiano (we call him Fr. Seb).
After a few years the movement realized the need to have a special place to welcome many in a common house. Trusting on providence, in 1990, Fr. Seb identified the area that we now call “Harmony Village”. This wish became possible through the generosity of Mr. Emilio Enriquez, a chinese friend of Fr. Seb, who donated a big portion of his land to Silsilah.
After few years Silsilah was tested by God in its commitment when in 1992 Fr. Salvatore Carzzeda, PIME, was killed at San Jose Gusu road in Zamboanga City . We consider him the first Martyr of Silsilah. Thus, the plan to develop Harmony Village was stopped for a while. In 1996, we started to move again in Harmony Village with the construction of the Oasis of Dialogue building. From that time on Silsilah, trusting in providence, found the way to continue to develop Harmony Village up to today.
