Following strict health protocols amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic, a candle lighting ceremony was held to commemorate the 7th anniversary of Typhoon Yolanda at the Philippine Science High School – Eastern Visayas Campus (PSHS-EVC) Students’ Lounge last November 9, 2020. 

The event was organized by the Ecumenical Committee headed by Mrs. Lorna Garnace. Due to the pandemic, health measures were strictly observed; therefore, only the faculty and staff were physically present. There were less than twenty people present and the wide and open venue prevented overcrowding. Face masks and physical distancing were tightly observed during the ceremony.

According to Garnace, the commemoration was held to remember the destruction and lessons learned from Yolanda as well as to ask for protection and forgiveness.
